Photographer's Note

The Cataratas de Agua Azul (Spanish for "Blue-water Falls") are found in the Mexican state of Chipas. They are located in the Municipality of Tumbalα, 69 kilometers from Palenque by the road that leads towards San Cristσbal de las Casas.

The water is as blue as it looks in the pictures, and has a high mineral content. Where it falls on rocks or fallen trees it encases them in a thick shell-like coating of limestone. This can be seen clearly in one of the minor falls in one of the pictures in the gallery below, where the part of a tree that leans against the waterfall is heavily coated while the part further away is not coated. Some fully coated log shapes can also be seen inside the fall in that same picture, as well as coating on the rocks.
