Fall Color, Narrows, Zion


Deep in the Narrows, in Zion National Park, Utah, this tree was growing straight out of the cliff.  Approximately 100 feet above the river below and several hundred feet below the top of the cliff.  I found it amazing the tree could survive in such a seemingly illogical location.  Light had just illuminated its leaves but had yet to reach high enough into the sky to light the lower portions of the narrow canyon.  I felt it left an incredible scene of stark contrast as the tree blazed a brilliant yellow against a dark canyon wall.

Another new image from a trip to Zion National Park in Utah this past fall.  I’ve had on my list to hit the main canyon of Zion during peak color for the past few years.  This year I finally hit it in full stride.  The park is an amazing photographer’s playground, especially during fall color.  Zion is definitely one of my favorite parks to hike and explore in.  On this trip I focused primarily on the main canyon and the Narrows.  Had some great weather and even better color.  More images are on the way…
