Deschutes River Summer Evening
While fishing the Deschutes River this July, I just so happened to witness a magnificent sunset as the full moon simultaneously rose above the painted clouds. During this time I watched beavers and fish swimming across the river as nighthawks, mergansers, and cliff swallows flew above the reflective waters Of course, on this beautiful one of a kind night, I left my camera at home! Thankfully, my phone camera was able to capture some of the unique beauty I witnessed on this evening.
