Photographer: Griffin Brugger Photo taken: April 30, 2018 at Lake Crescent Photographer’s description: “I was adventuring with my good friend, saw the amazing lighting and used my Canon 7D Mark 1.” Critique: “Sometimes just being in the right spot at the right time can be the key to getting a great photo. Kudos for adding some perspective to the frame by centering the kayakers in the middle of light coming through the clouds.” Below is a gallery of previous Reader’s Lens picks.
