Sarah Lilja took this photo on the St. Croix River near Franconia, where the rock formations are called the Franconia Dalles. Lilja says she was inspired by “the blue kayaks [which] so perfectly mirror the blue sky,” noting, “They make a great focal point against the red rocks of the dalles.” Lilja’s favorite part of the image are the vibrant colors. The St. Croix River Valley is one of her favorite spots, and she frequents it to take as many photos as she can.
