Hidden Lake on Navajo River

Location Origin Story

This is the snowed under Navajo River and the Rio Chamita along the Continental Divide on the border between New Mexico and Colorado in the Tierra Amarilla Grant area of the San Juan National Forest in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. The Navajo River was originally known by the First Nations Jicarilla Apache as ” Lóolahó”.

The headwaters of the river are in the distant valley to the middle left of this image. This river was both a lifeline and a transportation corridor to the ancient people who occupied this area.

About This Photograph

This deep and dark stormy mountainous scene was photographed in the early morning during the month of December while Zedekiah was flying and exploring the Tierra Amarilla area of the San Juan Mountains just west of the Continental Divide.

Image Rarity

The image was taken from a moving aircraft, as Zedekiah piloted the aircraft while simultaneously operating the camera.

Flying through snowstorms and moving storm clouds to arrange this scene was difficult and required serious attention to the surrounding atmospheric conditions.

Zedekiah used the dark storm clouds as a backdrop, where timing and being in the place-in-space for this scene to reveal itself was crucial to this image composition.

Lastly, it is impossible to simply walk up a trail and take the same photograph again. This image was very difficult to create, and is truly one-of-a-kind, therefore making it extremely rare.
