Sneak a Peek at the Snake River  by Terence Russell

Sneak a Peek at the Snake River by 

I loved the way the scene looked through the crook in this tree, so decided it was a good scene to capture. This was taken at a necessity stop along a fruitless attempt to find a certain park. While I was taking this shot, my daughter was shooting in the opposite direction while my wife photographed both of us in action.

Snake River, Washington (near Clarkston), USA

    beautiful capture, colours and I especially love the framing by the trees :) Great work!

  • Gary, when my wife saw this, she asked, “were we in the same place?” Of course we were, but she was too busy framing a shot of me taking this shot to see the scene itself! ;)
