Zion National Park_The Watchman

Prev Next

Just got back from another fall photo trip this time to the Southwest where I shot primarily in Zion National Park. I went with Adrian Klein and met up with fellow Flickr members Miles Morgan (mm767cap) and Steve Turner(steveturnerphoto). We were able to do the Subway but I was not the fastest cat on the course - so sorry guys for holding you up and thank you for waiting for me !!!
This image is from a very popular spot on the bridge called the Watchmen I believe .... I went with a darker exposure because it really fit the mood at the time I was photographing this.

I also used a 5-Stop Mor-Slo to get some longer exposure and deeper reds in the image.
The ND filter is fantastic for bringing out the most color in an image due to the longer exposure needed to get enough light.

Jeff Eickhoff, Wiffsmiff23, and 426 other people added this photo to their favorites.

    The light on the mountains reminds me of a Maxfield Parrish painting. Fabulous!
