Scene and sound along Zion National Park’s Virgin River this past week. Watch in HiDef at Full Screen
A professional landscaper couldn’t put this together. Nature at work at Zion National Park. Fall colors in the main Zion Canyon should be popping in the next week or two!
At Zion National Park! I’ve lived here for 8 years and have never seen the fall colors as vibrant on Zion’s Eastside as I have this year. More to come.
I didn’t spend too much time this autumn capturing the fall colors at Zion Canyon so I kind of caught the tail end of it.
This national forest in Northern Arizona straddles the Grand Canyon. There would be very little color if the Aspens didn’t flourish here.
Below are other fall color images as the peak was coming to an end. These images and more are available for purchase as metallic and paper prints, gallery wraps, standouts and giclee prints at Dawn2Dawn Photography.com
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.
This is the first post of three capturing the fall color season at Zion National Park, Utah. Peak colors arrived a few weeks later than normal and was quite beautiful. While shooting the fall foliage, I noticed a number of geological wonders I had not noticed before. Those images will appear in the next post.
