A Waterfall No More

Navajo Falls, Havasu Canyon, Arizona (AZ), USA

Change is a constant in nature… as contradictory as that may sound. These beautiful falls in Havasu Canyon are no longer flowing. A flash flood in 2008 changed the landscape irrevocably. But there’s good news too. The sudden change in flow created two new waterfalls in the area! I can’t wait to return to photograph the area again!

I used the small ridge in the foreground as a leading line to direct the viewers attention to the falls. It was a partly-cloudy day, so I waited for the sun to go down behind the mountain before taking this shot. I used a circular polarizer to cut through the glare and bring out the rich colors in the water.
