From Zion National Park area
A passing thunderstorm entered Zion National Park last evening around sunset and produced some amazing skies.
Still photos from last week’s big rainbow at Zion National Park, Utah. I looked out my bedroom window and noticed dark stormy clouds to the northeast and sunny skies to the west. Ripe conditions for a rainbow. But I had to wait patiently until the rainbow manifested as the setting sun was obscured by clouds. I almost gave up. But then the clouds parted and shafts of light shined on the remaining rain clouds.
A sunset shot.
Much needed rain made its way through Zion Country and produced some good photo ops just before sunset. Rainbow pics to follow soon!
This time from my own backyard.
I was amazed by the brilliant falls colors at Zion last week, but I also noticed some hidden areas in Zion Canyon that I really never observed before. We all take photos of those wide open panoramas but if you take your telephoto lens and zoom in on specific targets, its amazing what you can capture. And a few pics are of familiar spots but from new vantage points in the park.
