My brother and I headed out for a float and a fish one sunny summer day on the Colorado River. As we approached Radium Hot Springs, we heard, and then saw, a group people jumping off a cliff into the cool, brown water below. I yelled at my brother to drop the mini anchor so I could take a photograph. I snapped a few frames, and then we climbed up the cliff to do a jump of our own.

TOOLS: Canon 5D Mark lll, 16-35mm f/2.8, 1/1250 second, f/7.1, ISO 200
