This is one of those main-focus-turns-out-not-to-be-the-main-focus shots. I was taking a shot of the fallen log in the water for this shot, but couldn't get any closer, even though I wanted to. however, once I saw the full photo on screen I was amazed at the color, shapes, and light of the brush across the river. It looks to me like Dr. Suess took a watercolor brush to the embankment. (Click thumbnail for more detail) Collier State Park, rural Klamath County, Oregon; November, 2008.
