A Few Winter Photos From Zion National Park

A popular location in Zion

My last post was a bit heavy with my thoughts so I thought I’d simply share some images of Zion National Park from this last winter.  Zion can be extremely hot and crowded during the summer, but during the winter, it is almost the complete opposite.  This incredible Park is photographed extensively during summer but rarely during the winter.  I’m looking forward to spending much more time here over the next few years, particularly in the winter.  Much more to come on this subject but for now, I’ll share a few images from one recent visit.

Moving forward, what would you be interested in seeing more of?  Or reading more of?  I’d appreciate any thoughts or suggestions you may have.

Thank you,

Eric

Same for this image. The one element missing is light.

Fascinating how trees grow in rocks

 

Again, I learned from this image how I would photograph this differently next time

 

Scale often depends on perspective

 

Mountains or deep canyons? Depends on your perspective

  1. I was in Zion Park in May 2015. It looked indeed a bit differently then on your winter shots 😉 We reached there the last stop by bus, then got out and walked down on feet four stops. We were the only ones on the asphalt road and all who passed us by looked quite surprised…
