Anasazi Canyon

Anasazi Canyon (flooded waterway), Lake Powell, UT , 31-Oct-2011. Reflections in still water are always interesting. Careful use of a polarizing filter to help enhance the blue sky, but was taken at near mid day so little effect was possible. To make this image really interesting, and challenging to the eye, is to flip it upside down. Simply flipping the image provides the illusion of the objects appear to float in mid-air. The dark blue at the top is not the sky , but the reflection in the water. Flip the image back to right-side-up and the image is less challenging to the eye and makes more “sense”.
