Turning the tables on many photographs of Cape Horn, Jackson chooses here to use the overhanging bluff as a frame for a view back across the river towards Oregon. The silhouette of the rowboat creates a focal point in the midst of a subtle background. As with most mature artists, Jackson shows a keen insight into abstract forms at this point is his career. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
