Photographer RJ Hooper used drones to capture the rare sight of “Reverse Falls” in Utah, USA.
On January 16, Utah was blown with high winds. When the strong wind reaches the cliff of Kayenta (Kayenta), a strong updraft is formed, causing the waterfall that was originally flowing downward to appear anti-gravity phenomenon, and the water continues to float upward, forming a “countercurrent” landscape.
Hooper is at Facebook Shared the video and said: “This is unbelievable. This one-minute video of a waterfall falling back is just a fraction of the hours he filmed that day. For the past 20 years, all I remember is Kayenta, Utah The falls in the area have backflowed several times.”
He also mentions “drones battling 60 mph winds on the edge of a cliff,” but doesn’t describe the details. According to the typhoon signal definition of the Hong Kong Observatory, a typhoon with a sustained wind force of 63 to 117 kilometers per hour can be classified as “Typhoon Signal No. 8”. The DJI Mavic 3 Cine drone he used can still take stable pictures under such strong winds, and the wind resistance seems to be very good, which should be credited.
