finally made the journey to the land of blue-green waters. oh my! ancestral home of the havasupai (meaning literally 'people of the blue-green waters'), this 2000' deep side canyon in the western grand canyon, famous for its calcium carbonate enriched blue-green water, its stunning waterfalls, & the innumberable small falls & pouroffs, is a photographer's paradise.

going in off-season, fellow sedona photographer Ian Whitehead (see his exquisite work here: http://www.ian-whitehead.com) & I found an almost empty campground below havasu falls, the last of the beautiful fall colors, some very cold nights, and a variety of wonderful lighting conditions. we hiked 28 miles in four days and only just scratched the surface of all the incredible photo opportunities to be had in this lush grand canyon shangri-la.

for those of you interested, i'm in the early stages of planning a five day/four night HAVASU CANYON PHOTOGRAPHY EXPEDITION/WORKSHOP for the middle of march (trees fully green but still a few weeks before the springtime deluge of visitors). Unlike our recent trip, the WORKSHOP will take full advantage of the transportation amenities offered by the havasupai: helicopter ride in/out, mules to pack all gear to & from campground. there'll still be plenty of hiking to maximize photo opportunities but it will be much easier and more efficient!

drop me an email if you're interested in participating (mailto:dvbdigital@esedona.net) and i'll send you info on logistics & price.

meanwhile, enjoy the pix!
