Photography Tip:  (Full Disclosure) This sea kayak is not orange in my original capture.  In the original photo, this is a blue kayak.

The interplay of warm and cool colors creates color contrast and thus more interest for the human eye.<br />

Changing the color of the kayak was easy thanks to an awesome tutorial from Photoshop Wizard Mark Johnson.  To see how it is done go to<br />

I will be teaching a basic photography workshop for those willing to camp out for a few nights right here in Glacier Park with the Wilderness Institute in early October.  More details soon.
