Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 26 January 2010 in Landscape & Rural.

Even though this is northern Arizona, it's pretty dry. The lush areas are in these riparian zones next to streams.

A fine composition. The curve of the river back though the shot is very appealing. The sunlight has produced a dark side which adds to the strength of the image. A fine landscape.
