Hukou Falls

Hukou Falls is a large waterfall located in Jinxia Grand Canyon on the middle reaches of the Yellow River between Shanxi and Shaanxi Provinces, China.  The Yellow River is named because of the yellow brown color of the water from the high silt content. The wide river is constricted into a narrow deep gorge making this very dramatic waterfall with a drop of about 50 to 60 feet. This extends from the head of the canyon and also pours laterally from the canyon sides into the gorge making a series of U-shaped falls.  Though the water is not clear, sun shining on the exceeding fast moving river  produces intense yellow-brown and reddish brown colors. This scene is based upon review of many photos and videos taken by various people visiting the site.  The location of the scene appears at the start of this YouTube video .

The painting is acrylic on MDF board and measures 49-inches x 25-inches.
