Floating Boardwalk - Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

Coeur d'Alene Resort, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

After visiting the Palouse, I hooked up with an on-line buddy, Phil Kuntz, to spend a day exploring Idaho. Say what you want about social media, but I have met so many people online that have become friends, even though we have never met in person. Even better, when you do meet them in person, they almost always exceed your expectations. That certainly was the case with Phil. He is a wonderful photographer living outside Spokane, and his collection of images are impressive. You can see his work on his Flickr page https://www.flickr.com/photos/phils-pixels/.

Phil wanted to show me some of the great spots in Idaho, so we headed out. The light wasn't great but the companionship was. One of the stops was the Coeur d'Alene Resort, where we had lunch. The resort boasts of having the longest floating boardwalk in the world. I am not sure that is true, but it is long. As we were walking on it, I snapped a few shots of the boats and their blue covering. I thought the contrast with the amazing clouds was cool. At first glance, this looks like I processed this with selective color (I am not a huge fan of those shots), but I can assure you, this was the scene as it was.
