Reflections along the boat docks on Lake Coeur d’Alene in northern Idaho are a stunning array as the shades of blue colorize the water.  This picture was taken with my first digital camera, a Minolta DiMage, and though I like it would not be suitable for a larger print format due to the limitations of the camera.

Still searching for the perfect sea plane picture and these are okay but not exactly what I’ve been striving to achieve.  The ocean color is nice and plane itself has a good contrast but the water spray could have been better.  They have not been altered with Photoshop and that might help to deepen the blues.  The problem is in taking action pictures.  Still, they could be worse, too so I guess I shouldn’t beat myself up.    It’s more difficult to get the exact composition while trying to follow the object in motion.   If I’m recalling right this was in St. Thomas, USVI, but recall exactly.   Hint for the future, tag your pictures if you want to remember where they were taken with my first digital Minolta.  The picture quality would have been much improved had I been using the Nikon D60 but that was still a few years off.
