Very nice shot, when I first got it in my email I thought it was a black & white shot with just the color in the kayak via software. But as I really looked at it I saw the color of the rock and the water and I said to myself now that is cool.

Amazing image, Rob!

Did you know that BP has this image of yours posted on a scrolling slide show of ALL of their winner? YES! On their home page? Pretty neat huh???

This likley only shows up once a day or more but it did show up and it caught my eye and I clicked on it and it did open for me!

So may I offer my congratulations to you on this exciting image and winner, Rob! -Laura Swan BP MEMBER for one year.
