Fall In Zion

Zion National Park is one of my favorite places to visit. It never disappoints.  As a photographer, there are loads of possibilities for great landscapes.  The park has been super crowded over the last few years and there is no vehicle traffic allowed until after November 1st.  Some of my best landscapes have been made at this park.

One of the popular locations is the bridge overlook.  It looks down a river to beautiful mountains and a setting sun late in the day.  Throw in some clouds and it quite magnificent.  Many photographers would get to this location hours in advance to get a spot on the bridge.  There can be a hundred or more photographers and tourists trying to get a spot on this bridge.  These days I just bypass the bridge and head to some of my other spots.  The park doesn’t allow photography from this bridge now, as it is a safety hazard for pedestrians and cars.  Oh well, it was good while it lasted.

If you visit Zion, the fall is the best time to go. The crowds are smaller and the colors are just exploding.  You’ll find a ton of like-minded photographers there so beware. I have been fortunate enough with the numerous images I have of Zion to feel I have it pretty well covered.  However, I do look forward to visiting again.

Gum Trees

Gum Tree
Gum Tree, Australia

There are many things to love about Australia.  I have a lot of fo friends there and have traveled there a number of times.  The landscapes can be really beautiful.  Throughout the centra; part of Australia there are these beautiful gum trees.  These are gorgeous shaped trees with white bark.  As in this picture, the white bark really contrasts with the bluff walls in Orbiston Gorge.
