Winter for Waterfalls

When to shoot waterfalls depends on what part of Mexico you are in and whether you are shooting color or black and white.  In central Mexico, summer rains produce rich foliage...and reddish water, yuk!  By December, the water is clean but you lose the green, a good excuse to go back to Ansel Adams and John Sexton and zone out in black and white.  This photo was taken below the Tixhiñu waterfall in the state of Mexico in January.
