It is one of America’s greatest natural wonders – a spectacular scar in the dusky soil ofArizona that ranks as one of the best-known landmarks on the planet.

这是美国最美的自然景观之一,是亚利桑那灰黄的土地上一道深深的伤疤,也是时尚最著名的景观之一。

Indeed, show most people a photograph of the Grand Canyon, and they should recognise itinstantly – those steep cliffs falling away to the silver ribbon of the River Colorado farbelow; the Canyon walls dancing through a rainbow of pinks, reds, oranges and browns.

这里山势陡峻,层峦叠嶂,山下的科罗拉多河像是一条银色的带子流淌在五彩的山间。不错,大多数人都能通过照片就能一眼认出这是科罗拉多大峡谷。

So it is rare to see photographs that capture this geographical glory in a less-seen light.But the images here manage that.

所以要在如此少见的光线中捕捉到这一地理奇观实属不易,但以下这些照片做到了。

The pictures show the less-visited Havasu Canyon, which flows north into the Colorado

immediately to the west of the portion of the national park which plays host to the majorityof tourists.

这张照片展示了少有人问津的哈瓦苏峡谷,谷底的河流向北流入科罗拉多河,是游人众多的国家公园的西

部的一部分。

Havasu Canyon is part of the adjacent Havasupai Indian Reservation. And while it is alsoaccessible to the public, it does not receive the footfall of the main national-park space.

哈瓦苏大峡谷也是附近的哈瓦苏印第安保护区的一部分,虽然也向大众开放,却没有国家公园主要区域那样游客纷至沓来。

The photos show a snapshot of waterfalls within this smaller canyon; the large, double-chuted Havasu Falls and the smaller Mooney Falls – as well as the almost hidden Royal ArchCreek Falls, which is part of Grand Canyon National Park.All can be visited, although plenty of leg-work and hard hiking is required to reach the more off-path spots.

这些照片展示了这个小峡谷里众多瀑布:较大的双道哈瓦苏瀑布,较小的暮泥瀑布,隐秘的阿西王室山泉瀑布(这是大峡谷国家公园的一部分)。所有景点都向外公开,只是“世之奇伟瑰怪非常之观,常在于险远”,要到更多好地方还少不了走路。

Water at its most wonderful: This breathtaking image captures Havasu Falls - the main cascade on Havasu Creek in Arizona

A different take on the theme: Depending on the volume of water, Havasu Falls splits into two distinct torrents

不一样的主题:由于水量大,哈瓦数瀑布分成两支不同的水流。
