"My boating buddy, Carl Bigler, and his wife Jane, who is somewhere in the front of the boat, throw themselves to the mercy of the Lava Falls river gods on the Colorado River in Grand Canyon. For me, this picture shows the intensity, thrill, and sometimes capricious nature of running one of the most intense rapids on the Colorado. Seeing a 16 foot, fully loaded, boat up on its edge with a waterfall spilling out of the boat clearly shows the power of the water. The boatman’s intensity, despite his precarious situation speaks to his never give up attitude. Based upon this picture, do you think the boat was upright a second or two later?"

"Each river has a special character all its own, and the Main Salmon is no exception. This photo captures that, with the amazing old-growth Ponderosas, the massive white sand beaches, and the beautiful, clear water. Here the late afternoon sun illuminates our beach volleyball game and the rest of our camp on the south bank of the Main."

"I love this photo because of all the excitement and zoomed in aspect of the gear needed to complete a multi-day float. I especially strive for photos with a unique view, views that are less noticed by people."
