Palisades Rapids by Rhavethstine Palisades Rapids by Rhavethstine
Ohyeahcomment: Went on a four day hike down Tanner and back again recently. We were originally going to try making it to the Confluence of the little Colorado and Colorado rivers, but it wound up being much too hot and too long of a hike. We cut it short and camped pretty close to here instead. :)

C&C welcome.

I believe this is technically a stop along the Beamer trail, which follows the Colorado river after you get off the Tanner trail and head upriver. Bottom of the Grand Canyon. :)

Guh! When you do something in color, it always turns out so incredibly vivid and sharp. I want to go climb up and see what that especially red layer is made of. =)

Gorgeous work, as always.

Thanks! :)
I think the area you are interested in is mostly shale Supai formation. It's what causes the normally gray Redwall Limestone (thickest of the layers) to turn red. I think the Redwall Limestone has to be my favorite formation, because it is extremely prone to cave formation. :D

The water always looks amazing. I only wish I knew more about photography to critique you better :P. All I can ever think of is how amazing the shot turns out to be.

Hey, well at least you've got critiques on your mind. Really, you don't need to be a photographer to lend a critique. If you see something that doesn't look right or something that could look better, you shout it out. Regardless, thanks for always checking my stuff out. :D

I don't know why, but I always think the water looks funny in these pics. O_o

It's a pretty shot, though.
