America Southwest's 'rainy season' is actually summer, though a fast moving thunderstorm may hit anytime, and in this case on November 1st. It was very interesting to witness waterfalls cascading over colorful sandstone cliffs along Highway 89A in northern Arizona. Which would last only minutes, but leave behind their tracks like giant tears, adding to the landscape art.

This is such an unusual sight. Although the drop is not as high, and the colors are entirely different, it is evocative of the Cenote in Chichen Itza, on the Yucatan Peninsula.

Amazing plaze! Lanscape that seems to be just bare brown rocks and a deep green canyon where that waterfall disappears. I like those patterns that are made by falling water.

Hi Ray, Nice view of the temporary waterfall. Good timing if it lasts only minutes. beautiful colours of Arizona rocks.

If the rainy season is in summer (just like in Mexico) it will probably mean that then the falls will look the most spectacular. I'm not sure if there are snowcapped mountains in Arizona like in Yosemite. If so, the rivers and the waterfalls could have the largest flow in spring.
It's very beautiful how the water runs over the red rocks and crashes in in the lush green hole.
Best regards, Paul

very unusual view and original shot. I like the tight frame in here and good depth. It makes me want to come closer and have a peek into the abyss. The tiny stream and yellow bush in the corner add very much life to the composition.
Nice colors of the rocks.
Thanks for sharing!

Desert light-brown, almost with rusty-red texture to the rocks, and "painted" by the water moistured dry parts there, Ray.
Grand break on the terain, provided a super intriguing view for tourists, photography wise.
