Photographer's Note

This is a pebbly-beach just off the Columbia River Highway on the Oregon side of the river. This is a huge river at this point (about 30 miles east of Portland). The floating log made a good target for skimming stones at, as there was little chance in reaching the far bank which is my normal target for skimming.

The sky is the original sky, but I've used curves and levels to replicate the effect of a polariser (deeper blue that better balances the colours in the bottom of the image). I left the vapour trail in even though it's very tempting to remove it. With little movement in the upper air, the vapour trails are part of the landscape - there are often a dozen in the sky at any one time.
