The colors are disappearing fast at Zion National Park. Lack of rain here(rained once in last 2 months) has muted the colors.
From the last two weeks.
Not only is the Milky Way apparent in the sky, but so are the Sacred Datura Flowers that bloom through the night. Shot on different nights in Zion Canyon at Zion National Park, Utah
Temperatures over 100 degrees and monsoonal moisture have arrived at Zion National Park, Utah.
My camera took another hit a few weeks ago due to an accident but now it is better. You may remember a few years ago that this same camera accidentally fell into a creek high in the Sierras and took some time to heal after Canon said it was totaled. This time I spilled a soft drink on the camera which was sitting on my vehicle’s passenger seat but I quickly dried it off, but some damage was done. It was a coke(No more cokes) and they contain a lot of syrup which got into some of the dials and switches on the camera. After a few days, I couldn’t move a few. I gambled with some WD-40 and after a few weeks of drying out, the camera is in fine running order. For my next camera, I will purchase accidental damage insurance which is available. So I took some photos out in my backyard of Zion National Park which turned out just fine!
The rain and wind storm swept through Zion yesterday and produced some great photo ops. More to follow.
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.
