Photographer’s Notes
I looked long and hard for an interesting silhouette; found one I liked quite a lot and spent quite a bit of time perfecting it.

But went out one more time to see if I could catch something better. And as luck would have it, this paddle boarder paddled past just as I was leaving. Shot a few, ran to the left a bit to catch him just in the reflected glow of the sun. And Bob’s your uncle.

I still like the original and it’s a hard choice for me which to present.
