Water is vital to the health of all living things and in arid climates such as the desert southwest this is even more important. Below is a partially desaturated image of a well known landmark in the south fork of Cave Creek Canyon in the Chiricahua mountains. Known as the Bathtub, it is a small waterfall that pours into a deep pool along the trail. On a hike with guests from the Painted Pony Resort the group stopped for photographs at this spot and everyone spent time composing and capturing images. This is my contribution. The blue of the falling water stands in sharp contrast to the desaturated background highlighting the importance of water in the desert.
