Zion Narrows in the fall.
A tree changing color for the season, outside the Narrows in Zion National Park.
It has been awhile. Sorry for the lack of updates! Maja and I are planning a trip to Death Valley with our friends Dave and Bill - hopefully we will all return with some keepers. The picture above is from Zion National Park right before the Subway entrance. It was more crowded this year than I had remembered; getting this shot proved to be competitive :) Enjoy!
I took this picture near Angels Landing in Zion National Park, hiking up towards the West Rim trail. I love the lines and the sky in this image.
Another shot from the Zion narrows. The narrow walls bounce light beautifully on the water.
There's something about the movement of this shot that grabbed my attention tonight. A dance of color and lines. I took this during a casual hike up to Angel's Landing in Zion. I find my photography drawn more and more to detail work over vast landscapes than ever before. Enjoy.
A fern and water detail from Zion. I am a big fan of ferns. Especially in Zion.
This is from the exit of the Left Fork of North Creek (aka "The Subway") slot canyon in Zion Natl. Park. An often photographed location for a good reason, it pretty unique (even in canyon county terms). The hike is a fairly miserable 8 mile round trip scramble up and down a river bed/flood zone with numerous river crossings and lots of boulder-hopping. It's worth it once you round the corner to a truly spectacular section of sandstone. I left a couple hours before sunrise to beat the mid-day rush and had the place to myself for a couple of hours before at least 20 others began crowding the narrow exit. It was a fun day, soon I hope to do the slot top down and explore the whole canyon.
Another from Zion National Park. A maple tree cluster off the trail climbing up to observation point. It's getting cold in the southwest and it is almost time to head to Death Valley to warm up!
I just returned from Zion National Park - shooting the fall colors. I was still a bit early for the main valley, but the subway section (photos to come soon) and the narrows were very nice. Attached is a picture from the narrows.
