Deer Creek Double Waterfall

Deer Creek has cut a short, deep canyon within the Grand Canyon National Park more specifically know as the Deer Creek Narrows. I approached this unique natural wonder by raft via the Colorado River. Starting at Lee’s Ferry, traveling 137 river miles over 14 days, I camped on the rivers edge across from Deer Creek Falls. A trail just downstream of the falls heads up to the narrows through the Tapeats Sandstone. The waterfall in the upper portion of the photograph is the first of several as the water enters the narrows section and joins the Colorado River below.

Featured image of the water of the Little Colorado River in the Grand Canyon.This photo is a close-up of the slit laden water from the Little Colorado as it mixes in with the clear water of the Colorado River in Grand Canyon National Park. To me it almost appears to be smoke.
The Grand Canyon is one of the most iconic landscapes on the planet. But this natural masterpiece of the Colorado River faces a battery of threats. Unless the Department of the Interior acts to stop these threats, one of our nation’s greatest natural treasures will be scarred forever.

Shadow Handle Featured

Featured Image on Fine Art America

I grabbed myself a featured photo without knowing it as I walked the backside of the strip malls of Santa Fe, New Mexico, which provided some visually interesting sights. Minimalism is a highly subjective concept in the photography world. The Webster dictionary defines it as follows: A style or technique that is characterized by extreme spareness and simplicity. I like the idea that less is more with simple lines, geometric patterns, strong shadows, contrasting colors, lone subjects, etc.

Elves Chasm of the Grand Canyon

Featured Image

This amazing natural wonder is considered one of the Grand Canyon’s best-kept secrets. Elves Chasm is a beautiful shaded grotto with a luscious waterfall. After tying up your raft at the Royal Arch Creek drainage on the Colorado River, you hike up the drainage preforming a few slippery, slithery moves to reach this wonder of the Grand Canyon. There is a cave-like climb up into the waterfall and a spot that you jump from but be very careful.

Taos Box – June 7, 2016 #1

The Taos Box section of the Rio Grande, New Mexico, has some of the best, most exciting whitewater in the Southwest. This image was made as the rafters dropped into the second wave of Power Line Falls, a true class IV rapid. The rapid was created by a collection of very large boulders that have fallen into the riverbed.

Rio Grande – Infrared

This infrared image was created as I walked the banks of the Rio Grande in my home state, The Land of Enchantment. I noticed the leading line of rocks that took my eyes back upstream to the cottonwood grove, which is called a “bosque” here in New Mexico.
The first infrared photographs were not published until 1910. This type of photography became popular with photography enthusiasts in the 1930s when suitable film was introduced commercially.
