The framing and focus of this snapshot suggest Sykes spontaniety. This was before the Snake River jet boats that now take tourists far up the canyon on a bumpy ride through many rapids, protect by a covering of optical plastic. You can take or find one of these trips, of course, on Youtube. Perhaps that is Horace’s boat and he recorded it from the shore. The jerk of it all suggests that he had little time to catch it.
