Zion National Park, Utah.
We drove to Zion yesterday. When we arrived, we didn’t have much time before sunset, so I thought we would take a quick scouting trip to get a lay of the land. We got really lucky – I stopped at a random little pull-out and started hiking into some side canyon and stumbled into this wonderful patch of color! It was just out of view from the road. Then we got even luckier and found a half dozen Desert Big Horn! That may be tomorrows post.
Funny, sometimes I can scout all day and have trouble finding a nice location, and then a day like today comes along and I stumbled upon a pretty setting in minutes! I suppose it all evens out – no doubt it helps to be in a amazing place like Zion.
I like the warm glow that comes from the reflected light of the red canyon walls, but that doesn’t provide much light to shoot by. Adding a polarizer to remove the glare from the leaves reduced the amount of light a few more stops. I was very fortunate to have dead calm air as this ended up being a 10 second exposure.
