Colorado River at Yuma

This is a small version of a 61 MB panorama of the Colorado River as it runs by downtown Yuma, Arizona. You definitely need to click on the photo to see anything. If you read this blog at all, you probably have figured out that I really like panoramic photography. The reason is pretty simple, you get an expansive view of the landscape and most of the landscape I look at is pretty expansive in itself. This picture is interesting because a little ways down river, virtually all of the Colorado's water is diverted off into canals, leaving the river almost dry by the time it enters the Gulf of California aka Sea of Cortez.
