This was an HDR shot to capture the various color shades of the rock, sky, and water.
I rented a houseboat to explore and photograph Lake Powell for a week. My main destination was the Escalante Arm of the lake. I used a kayak to explore the various side canyons looking for the reflected light off the canyon walls reflected off Lake Powell. This particular canyon with the reflection was what I had been searching for. Once I got the kayak into position to shoot the photo, I had to wait for all my paddle-stroke ripples to dissipate. I had to hand-hold my camera extremely still in order to take a series of pictures to create this HDR image.
