Grand Falls - Navajo Nation, Arizona
GFX-50R, 23mm (~18mm FF equiv), ISO 100, f/5.6, 3s

Arizona's largest waterfall, located in the Navajo Nation, is seasonal and runs reliably only during the spring melt of snow from Northern Arizona's mountains. It is 600 feet wide and 186 feet tall.  Since it runs through the desert it picks up a lot of sediment giving it it's muddy or chocolaty appearance. Yesterday, I made the 8 hour round trip in hopes that it would be running strong after several very warm days. I was not disappointed...

What an amazing sight. Incredible chocolate fountain! We get peat coloured water in falls but this liquid chocolate is in a league of its own.

I have never seen a landscape photo like this before, very cool! Your point of view for the photo is excellent and the leading lines throughout are spot on. That is quite the psychedelic sky, love it.

Stunning shot of an amazing event. What a color! The perspective really shows the dimensions. I like the whirlpool at the bottom-it adds to the sense of the force of the rushing water. (Must click on to see it better). Sky is awesome.
