“Water of the Ancients”
I captured this image standing high above the raging torrent of Beaver Falls deep within narrow sidewalls of Redwall Limestone. Beaver Falls is the most difficult to access of a series of about five waterfalls located along Havasu Creek within the Havasupai Indian Reservation. It is about a 14 mile trek one way deep into Grand Canyon to access these mesmerizing desert pools surrounded by high canyon walls. Not for the faint of heart as it does require some moderate rock climbing. The sun only shines on these falls during a very narrow window of time and so scoring the right shot can be tricky. I used f/11 to increase sharpness with a two second exposure to create the soft flowing water effects of beaver Falls. This image was captured using a 28mm lens.
