This picture is from a GLLKA tour that Marnie and I took the Saturday before Mother's day. The morning was foggy, the entire day was cold, but we had a fun tour. This picture is taken with "the long lens",; and then digitally zoomed to get me close enough that you can see it The water is very shallow, and this was as close as we could get the boat. gllka
