Photowalk: Arizona Falls

A place in Arizona that I keep hearing about as being an awesome place to shoot is Arizona Falls.

The site showcases the Phoenix Art Commission’s “WaterWorks at Arizona Falls” project, designed by renowned Boston artists Lajos Heder and Mags Harries. The main entrance is on the south side; a footbridge connects the north bank to the viewing platform.

Visitors, surrounded by water on three walls in the water room, may sit on large boulders as they enjoy the cool and soothing sounds of flowing water.

Through sheets of flowing water, the antique gears used in the original hydroelectric plant can be seen. Two aqueducts frame the room to create the feeling of being inside the historic waterfall. A shade structure covers stone block seats near a pool of water, allowing visitors to enjoy the experience year-round.

Not only awesome to photograph, but it’s also generating electricity at the same time! Definitely a place I want to get back to during sundown or at night and shoot again.

All of the shots I took today can be found at Flickr.
