Upper Tahquamenon Falls in Michigan, USA

This blast of autumn colour comes from the uppers falls of Tahquamenon Falls, within a state park of the same name in Michigan, USA. The cascade has the nickname ‘Root Beer Falls’ due to the reddish-brown tint the water often takes. Cedar swamps upstream put a high concentration of tannins in the water, which causes the discolouration. And when autumn turns the leaves on the banks orange and crimson, the waterfall blends in nicely with the colour scheme.
