When I first processed this picture, I wasn't too happy with the color of the water b/c it looked brown. However, the bird was so beautiful, I hoped it would take the viewers' eyes away from the brown water.
The only way to this location is via boat. James Shadle has been taking many people out there for years and is a very accomplished photographer. He is a member of 500px if you care to contact him or view some of the amazing images in his gallery.
