I'll end this Lake Powell photo tour with another of my favorites. This is more like real photography, where most of the other photos have been family snapshots. This morning the clouds were beautiful, with sun rays peeking through and turning the water gold. A perfect shot to enhance with a bit of HDR. I have to add something about Lake Powell skies. At night when it is clear, as it most always is, we lay on our backs on the top deck and watch the best show ever. The sky is very, very dark (no city lights for miles), and so you can see millions upon millions of stars and constellations. The milky way is amazing, the north star brilliant, the big and little dipper are easily spotted. And almost every night you can see one or more shooting stars. Now that is relaxing!!!
