Surreal Autumn Images

These are photographs taken this past week at Zion National Park, Utah. Utilizing in-camera techniques by moving the camera slightly during a slow exposure, you get a distorted image, but not quite a Monet.

The colors are disappearing fast at Zion National Park.  Lack of rain here(rained once in last 2 months) has muted the colors.

Fall Colors Invade Zion Canyon- Part 1

Like an army of ants, autumn colors made its journey through Zion Canyon the past few weeks.  Cottonwoods, maples and scrub oaks are the trees that provide the display.  Its just too bad that the colors don’t stay longer.

I Was Going To Shoot Fall Colors Today But Winter Showed Up at Zion NP

I went to Zion National Park today to photograph the amazing fall colors happening now but was detoured because it snowed. I mostly shot the fall colors(To Follow) but thought I’d post some early winter pics or both?

Zion Autumn Volume 3- Along The Virgin River and Plein Air

The Virgin River has done to Zion Canyon what no Hollywood special effects movie director could ever do. Create a remarkable canyon that is and looks natural. Throw in a pinch of fall colors and you have a masterpiece. During early November, Zion NP hosted the Plein Air Art Invitational(Facebook Page Link) where a number of renown landscape painters plied their trade(In The Footsteps Of Thomas Moran)  and produced memorable paintings capturing the essence of Zion during the autumn season. One such is Steve Hill and you case see his work at Windswept Studios. The images below are fall colors I shot along the Virgin River a few weeks ago.
