Living in Kalispell, Montana I’ve taken many, many photos of Avalanche Gorge. None of them look anything like your beautiful photo. I love the colors and feeling in this lovely interpretation!

I love this photo. The contrasting colors and the way you composed this image are stunning. Choosing a long exposure to capture the movement of the water was a wise decision. Keep shooting Sandy. You have a great eye!
