Red Rock Canyon , Nevada

Yesterday we had a serious monsoon storm coming through dropping several inches of rain. This is extremely rare for Southern Nevada and much needed. I decided to head out to capture some of the aftermath from all the water. I do however wished that i had time to venture out during the storm as there are many waterfalls that flow during the rains through out Red Rock.

This is NOT an HDR!! This was shot with a single exposure and a Soft edge GND filter.
