Spring rains produce a crystal clear stream of water in the normally-dry Boulder Canyon, Superstition Wilderness. Boulder Canyon drains a large portion of the western Superstition Wilderness, eventually joining with LaBarge Canyon before flowing into Canyon Lake. By setting up my camera no more than a couple inches above the water, using an ultra-wideangle lens, and turning the polarizer in order to reduce reflections, I was able to capture these beautiful green plants (unsure of the species) appearing to be swept downstream with the flow of water. The butte in the background catching evening light is an unnamed peak near the eastern edge of Hackberry Mesa.
