The Delta Series

"Arterial Poetry" by Paul Nicklen.

It’s easy in the rush of our daily lives to forget just how dynamic rivers are. In his “Delta Series” conservation photographer Paul Nicklen explores that ever-changing nature from above the Colorado River delta. With the ongoing megadrought in this region and ever-increasing demands for more water, the Colorado no longer flows to the ocean. It trickles its way to a tired end near Baja, Mexico, where its last gasp is not enough to sustain ecosystems that relied on the river’s irrigation long before us. Nicklen’s work is a beautiful portrait of the fractal, tree-like patterns of a slowing river. Find more of Nicklen’s work on his website and Instagram. (Image credit: P. Nicklen; via Colossal)
