This shot was taken in one of several refreshing lakes near Omak, Wash., a beautiful area about four hours by car from Seattle.
In central Washington, temperatures can push up to 100 F during the mid and late afternoon, and residents head for the nearest body of water to cool down. This shot was taken near Omak, Wash., in 2012. (Click on the picture to open the photograph on a separate picture page.)
There’s something so engaging about this photo. It’s exactly what I would hope to be doing if it were summer where I live. So fun!
Thanks. I was only thinking about jumping in that lake after I took this shot. It was blazing hot that day, and all the colors were washed out. Hope you find some warmth soon.
