Photographer's Note

Sumidero Canyon is a deep natural canyon located just north of the city of Chiapa de Corzo, in southern Mexico. It was created by a crack in the area's crust and subsequent erosion by the Grijalva River, which still runs through it.
It has vertical walls which reach as high as 1000 metres, with the river turning up to 90 degrees during the 13-kilometre length of the narrow passage.
The canyon is surrounded by the Sumidero Canyon National Park.
