Description: Beneath a baby-blue sky, Mount Hood, snow-covered, fills the center, with two bluish-grey lower ranges below. A river flows directly toward the viewer from the center, with boulders on each side, brush and forest behind. Dead trees lean out from the left and in the distance on the right. A live tree leans out from the right foreground. A snag stands in the river on the right, behind it is the fisherman in a beige jacket and dark hat--no pole is evident. The trees on the left are yellow-green, the ones on the right are mostly deep green, the leaning tree is yellow. (From a color photograph.)
