A very intriguing view and phenomenon, James.
I have never heard of a "water pocket", so thanks for sharing this unusual geological landform and rare perspective with us.
I have been to Capitol Reef and remember the incredible scenery there and the "holes" in the reef.
Excellent POV to show the meandering effect.
TFS. : )

What a stunning picture. the detail and composition are excellent, my first thoughts had ben glacier, til I saw where the picture was posted and then read your notes. Rock, it seems really odd and amazing. The only thing I am missing is scale, I'm guessing large, but how large?

How interesting to get a birdseye view. It is always fascinating to see so much evidence of water with so little water visible. I've been in Utah during flash floods and it is a sight to behold. This is a nice sharp image of an unusual sight. Thanks for sharing it.

I have seen photos of this place from inside the canyons and from the canyons edges but not an aerial photo. Very unique and interesting environment to photograph and yopu have shown it very well here. These canyons apparently know the true meaning of term 'flash flood', as hugh amounts of water can flow through these canyons very quicky then is gone as quickly as it came. A very dangerous environment.
