Shadow Cowboy and Hat.

I saw this hat sitting out in one of the steaming pools in Yellowstone National Park. As I tried to figure out how to make it into a composition for an image I noticed folks shadows pass near the hat as they walked by on the boardwalk . I asked a tall guy with cowboy boots to hold so I could get the image. The image was taken four years ago today while attending the Nikonians ANPAT 7 trip.
