Desert Oasis by tourofnature Desert Oasis by tourofnature
A little slice of paradise. Rock falls in Havasu canyon in Arizona. I worked up some courage earlier that day and jumped off this into the white water below. Great memories! Natural occurring Lime in the water creates the beautiful turquoise hues.

Canon 5D Mark III. 17-40 L. CPL. 2SS GND filter.

I find this cool, because I'm not quite sure of the scale of size. Is that a huge waterfall from a distance, or a small stream from close up? Really interesting!

Wow! that looks so nice it seems surreal. I'd love to go wondering around in a place like that
And after some absolutely ridiculous DD's lately it's nice to actually see some breathtaking art, this is a great shot and definitely worthy of a DD!

Wow. I was there after a large flood, and a lot of the natural landscape had been destroyed. They were working on returning the flow of the water to its original places. It looks beautiful! I hope that the work they did helped restore it. Thanks for sharing this!

It's a lot different than before the flash flood in 2008, but still unbelievable! Glad you made it there too, maybe my favorite place yet.
