Here’s the first photo I processed from the trip to Zion National Park last month. It was my first visit and although we spent only 3 days there, they were fully packed days. Photographically speaking this trip was mostly a scouting trip. I didn’t expect to take many great photos in the park. Mostly I was just looking to familiarize myself with the park, it’s locations and how the light worked so that future trips I could plan carefully. Even so, I believe I managed to get a few photos from the trip that are worthy of the permanent portfolio.
The park is so photogenic you can get nice images even when you aren’t trying very hard.
Based on what I saw, I really believe you could spend an entire lifetime photographing Zion. At the entrance to the park are several small photo galleries who’s owners have done just that. Their work is extraordinary. I envy them the opportunity.
Anyway, please enjoy this first image from the trip…
