Hells Canyon

In May 2015 I had the opportunity to lead a group of teens down the Snake River in Idaho's Hells Canyon, the Seven Devil's Range of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. The weather ranged from 85 degrees, hot and dry - to nautical grade rainy with lightning and thunderstorms. This photo was taken after a long night of rains as the blue skies were pushing through the recently broken up storm clouds. It looks almost surreal but this is not an HDR image, it's a single exposure, handheld shot taken at f/13 from a raft floating in the middle of the river.
