Description

My first experience hiking Havasupai. I had broken 2 toes on the 10 mile hike in and taped myself all up so that I could go see this early in the morning. There really isn't anything that can prepare you for the first sight of Havasu falls. It's simply nature in harmony with perfection. A 100 foot waterfall that crashes into a gem-like turquoise pool amphitheater surrounded by lush greens. Dozens of smaller spill outs and blue-green mini falls cascade over small natural travertine dams on the periphery. My first morning I got up at 5 AM and headed out to Havasu Falls to shoot and had the place to myself. Soon the sun became high and I laid back and rested against my camera backpack and just watched the falls. The mist was constant and soft against my face. I wanted to feel and hear the falls and nothing else. There is magic here and in the background, the song of the canyon wren.
