Zion National Park

Last week, I joined fellow nature photographer Rich Voninski for three days of shooting the fall colors in Zion National Park. Rich has been there several times and knows many of the best locations for our kind of photography. The weather cooperated with a couple of storms moving through so we had everything from "severe clear" skies to a little rain and snow to clouds draped over the mountain peaks with the sun breaking through. One of the features of Zion besides the incredible canyons and monumental mountains and the Virgin River, is the variety of trees---particularly this time of year the cottonwoods and maples turning color next to a variety of others.
