Last summer, we spent a couple of days touring Zion National Park. Undeniably this is a place to exercise your photography skills. Surprisingly, I was happier with the photos from here compared to the Grand Canyon. In contrast to my shoot at the canyon, I was confident I had something memorable. The light at sunrise and sunset was beautiful against the tall mountains. Accordingly the deep blue skies were a nice compliment to the sandy colored mountains.
In the middle of the day, the hard shadows emphasize the crevasses against the mountain. Since it was not the best time of day to shoot, we did a lot of hiking at this time. Angels Landing was suggested by our tour guide as a challenge to complete. Seeing that I had not heard of this trail before, we researched it and attempted the long hike. To that end, we were treated to a breathtaking view from the top! Although the trail continued on, I did not have the courage to continue the section studded with chains. My fear of heights and my camera gear haul would not let me go any further!
