Arizona Falls is one spot in Phoenix I keep coming back to for photography.  It is such a simple and often over looked dot on the Phoenix map for photography yet it has so much to offer a photographer.  The falls are a spot in the Phoenix canal system where the elevation changes, hence a waterfall.  But SRP, one of the electric power companies in Phoenix, has turned this otherwise mundane spot into a work of public art.  And it generates electricity.  So why go back and photograph the same thing over and over again?  Because it is never the same place twice.  Arizona Falls has two elements that make this structure constantly changing; light and water.  The flow of water is different throughout the year just as the light changes with the seasons and the time of day.  So you will always get something new even if you return again and again as I have.
