Zion’s Emerald Pools

The recent heavy rains caused much destruction last week in Southern Utah but they can also produce some magic at Zion National Park. Emerald Pools are a series of small ponds along the canyon walls of Zion. But when it rains hard, waterfalls appear that many park visitors never experience.

  1. It must take so much effort to get there, then haul your equipment and lens… to take these shots! You probably have to hike up and down to get the spot you want to capture the scene. Thank you so much for these great captures, Michael!

    • Thanks Amy. Getting there IS part of the process. It was raining when I shot these and there was mud on the trails from the day before’s flash flood rains. My lens kept getting water drops on it so i was continually wiping it off
