ZION 8 – Tower of the Virgin © 2013Zion National Park, UT
Zion has incredible red canyon walls; at least that’s what Niki says. I’m colorblind, so I couldn’t tell you. She says it’s a perfect place for color photography because the green of the trees bounces off the red walls. I think it’s also a great place for black and white photography. The mountains above the canyon are filled with wonderful shapes and textures, as is the valley in the canyon. I had a great time there, but I didn’t stay long enough even to start photographing the upper levels.
