The Majesty of Zion

Virgin River Narrows

Imlay Boulder

Zion National Park

Springdale, Utah


Well, it has taken me almost 8 months to decide which of my narrows shots to print, but I have finally decided on this one. After posting three other shots, I still wasn't satisfied because each one of them focused on a particular aspect of the scene but didn't ecompass it all. After going back into my archives, and working on this one, I decided this one is definitely my favorite, because it has all the separate things I liked about the other shots combined into one. I'm getting this one blown up to 20x30 and printed on metallic paper to put in my hallway. Thanks for all your kind comments on my previous shots from this area.

    Super super shot. I walked to the head of the trail but the river was so high could not get into the narrows. How ever did you manage to get so many pictures without the hoards of people getting in the way?
  • Justin Smith 4y

    Fantastic light, and I love the way the blurred cascades contribute to the composition.
