  • The light shining through the subway is what makes this shot, in my opinion
  • I LOVE the color of the water in some of these pools in this canyon

Light in The Subway - Canyoneering in Zion National Park

Newer Older

I had the great privilege of canyoneering "The Subway" route in Zion National Park (Utah) for a second time last weekend. It is truly a spectacular canyon, especially this section for which it is named. The light shining through the subway leads you around the corner to the grand exit. Perhaps another time I will post a photo of that part. Oh, and I must point out that the slippery slope coming in from the left makes a great water slide.

To save space and weight while canyoneering I didn't take a big tripod this time, so this photo was taken with my Gorillapod, while lying in the stream.

You can buy prints here or see more of my photos.

    Extra-ordinary in so many ways, but I worry that the HDR has given an unreal feel to it.
    I am due to visit the park in the next 2 weeks, I hope I get taken here. It is rather out of my control. I suspect I wont get anywhere near it!!

    Thanks for the feedback, everyone. Tramsteer - I appreciate your comment regarding HDR. I have been trying to figure out how far to take HDR.

    Here's another shot from the same section of the canyon:

    Colorful! Looks like the river floor is Australian opal. Nice composition and light.
