      Michael! I don't know how I missed this but it is wonderful! I see these salt pond images and always find the color amazing. I read about how the colors happen and find it all quite fascinating - I don't ever recall having heard of these things in the Seattle area, I guess not enough dryness for evaporation.

      Great job on the composition and the color contrast is superb.

      and thanks for the vote of confidence in making me a contact. I appreciate it. So when shall we sk8?! -Mark

      What an excellent shot! Shame it isn't a bit sharper but I understand you were limited in terms of what you could send up there...
