Devil’s Ear Canyon, Where Water Resembles Raging Fire

Devil’s Ear Canyon, Where Water Resembles Raging Fire

News Videos

Treading in hot water, Benjamin John Rother found a stunning location where the water resembles raging fire. The 30-year-old diver from Pennsylvania visited High Springs, Florida, hoping to seeing a natural phenomenon.

After swimming the distance of a few hundred feet, Benjamin reached the point where the Santa Fe river meets the Devil’s Ear canyon opening.

The dark tea colour of the water is caused by tannic acid that is released from the roots of cypress trees.

The stained river water mixes with nearly 80 million gallons of crystal clear fresh water daily from the Devil’s Spring System and creates the amazing storm effect with the sun shining through.
