Thanks to everybody for the very nice comments I got on this photo!

I guess it was a location taylor made for this challenge :). This was taken during a kayaking trip to the Columbia Glacier, from Valdez, AK. The blue in the ice was really nice - as you can tell from the image. Practically no processing at all, jut a tiny bit of contrast and saturation.

So, if you're ever around that area, I strongly recommend this kayak trip :)

Here's a pic from the same trip that I considered putting into "Solo":

Sea kayaking looks like it would be a blast, especially around icebergs. Ice always has such beautiful blues...very nice photo!

Excellent colour contrast. You just need to crop so the canoe is in the bottom right of the frame.
