Photographer: Torri Howard, Sultan
Photo taken: Dec. 5, Sultan
Photographer's description: "The rain was coming down and then the sun came out. This picture was taken at the park where the Sultan River and the Skykomish River intersect. It was amazing!
Expert says: "This is a beautiful scene. The nicely composed photo captures an amazing quality of light. The tall tree on the left counters the weight created by the double rainbow. The eyes have a gentle edge on the right to fall away from the scene with the darker clouds and shadows. The sunlight hitting the people on the water is another plus. My one nit to pick would be to see them closer for a stronger point of entry."
