Colorado indeed

It’s been an unusually wet gray week in the desert, and this has brought water to my mind in general, and some of its more colorful properties from wishful thinking.  So, here are some photos of brightly colored waters.  One is tinted by reflections on its surface, another by what’s under its surface, one by its sediment load, two by clarity and chemistry, and all by light.  The colors in the photos are natural.  (all photos A.Shock)

"Colorado" means colorful, and here is the mixing of the Colorado River (green) with its spring-fed tributary, the Little Colorado (aqua), at a red gravel bar in the Grand Canyon

    Allison, I can’t get enough of these photos. Water is wondrous–I love the pictures I get at the oceanside–as the wave draws out, leaving rivulets in the sand in beautiful patterns. Add a sunset to that, and whammo.

    I agree; and, I really miss living on the west coast. Fortunately, I can still get my Pacific Fix while visiting family in southern California.
