"Red" Waterfall

A photographer to capture a moment of rare events, a waterfall and a clear river suddenly turns red as tomato soup.

Rochelle Coffey attention to changes in water color from clear to red in just over two hours.Mother of two children were visiting the waterfall Cameron, in Alberta, Canada with her husband. She has always taken a picture of the river for six years.

But in this latest trip, though she did not believe that she can see, the color of the river turns red, brownish.
The phenomenon is caused due to high rainfall so eroded sediment is red-called argolite and brought it from the rocks into the water.
Waterton Lake, a place where there are waterfalls, has the oldest sedimentary rocks on the rocks Canada, aged 1500 years ago.
