Agua Azul means blue water, but as you can see the water is anything but blue.  The falls at Agua Azul are immense, and in season strikingly blue.  During the rainy season, however, the muddy runoff leaves the pristine waters a dark brown—beautiful in its own right.  We had a huge storm the night before and the falls were running with great force, speed and drama.  I hiked to the headwaters, gaining a lot of elevation, to capture this shot.  Unseen from this vantage point are the multitude of falls cascading down the mountain side at different levels and vanishing from view.  Looking downstream I had hiked a trail running parallel to the gorge where the falls disappear in this image.  This image is very high resolution and will print large:  up to 32 x 48 inches.

Photographer’s notes:  Captured with a Canon EOS 5D Mk2 camera and EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens in CameraRAW.  Shot at 1/640s @ f/8, ISO 100, FL=58mm.  Converted and edited in PSE11.
