Iceberg Canyon on the Colorado River
Location Origin Story
This is the Colorado River exiting the Grand Canyon through Iceberg Canyon into Lake Mead in the Gregg Basin. In Spanish: Río Colorado, means “Colored River“, with an implication of the natural reddish, muddy color the river used to have that was caused by natural sediment loads.
After multiple dams were built to harness the power and control seasonal flooding (still controversial after many decades) the upstream silt is filtered out by the dams. No longer is the water as muddy or colored but instead has acquired the clear blue-greenish hue seen here.

About This Photograph
This dark mountainous scene was photographed in the early evening during the month of November while Zedekiah was flying and exploring the Lewis Range in Glacier National Park around Gunsight Mountain.
The image was taken from a moving aircraft, as Zedekiah piloted the aircraft while simultaneously operating the camera.
Navigating around a very rapidly moving storefront was necessary to position the scene as the sun rays began to shine through.
Zedekiah used the sunlight as a centerpiece, 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.
This image is offered as a numbered and signed, limited edition of one thousand (1,000) prints.
There are one hundred (100) artist proofs available.
