Good Morning Salida!

I captured this photo looking East on the Arkansas River early in the morning on our first full day of vacation in Salida, Colorado. Nikon D500 fitted with Nikkor 18-300mm zoom lens at 122mm, ISO 100, aperture f/6.3, shutter speed 1/25th second (hand held resting on bridge railing). I lost my lens cap and hood in the process, but I think the photo was worth it.
