I took this on my way to work last week. These are the Towers and Temples of the Virgin.
I’m restarting my Photos From the Archives series. It’s been a while since I’ve been out shooting because life keeps getting in the way. The average daily temperature is around 105F and in the high 70’s to low 80’s at night. I’m just wishing for fall and cooler weather.
Clear Creek Canyon, East Zion
I’m going through photos of my most recent jaunt up Zion Canyon shooting fall colors, and I found this gem of some leaves flowing down the creek below Weeping Rock. I hope you enjoy it.
On the advice from a fellow blogger, I organized my galleries to be subject specific. There is a new gallery for Bryce Canyon National Park (I realize I need to post more photos of this beautiful place), Grand Canyon National Park, and of course, my beloved Zion National Park. I also posted galleries for flowers and birds, with a gallery for Ancient Art, Arizona, and Other Animals in the works.
Enjoy the images! Remember, they are all available for purchase. Contact me for details.
Have you asked yourself lately where you want to be? At work? Home? In the desert or mountains?
Sometimes I’d just like to curl up next to a roaring fire with a good book and a steaming mug of hot chocolate. But my first choice would be out in nature, either in the mountains or desert. It’d have to be the desert this time of year because of snow in the mountains.
But my favorite place to be is where few others go: The Road Less Traveled, because there are things to see there that are just too beautiful to describe.
Have a great day and enjoy your road less traveled.
This is what the park looked like this morning with all the rain clouds. (Although I took this one a couple of years ago). Just received word that Zion National Park (and other Utah parks) will reopen this weekend, funded of course by the State while our fearless(?) leaders work out their differences, which is hopefully soon.
I’m participating in the online adventure travel magazine Wild Weekly Photo Challenge
for bloggers. This week’s Challenge is: Macro Photography!
It was very difficult to pick which photo to use, so I broke it down to three:
Yes, it’s been a while since my last post. I’ve been busy with work in beautiful Zion National Park. However, today I took some time to go into the mountains to get photos of the fall colors. I went up to the Kolob Terrace of Zion National Park and up to the lake.
I took many photos of the changing leaves and the lake, and even saw a bald eagle, which is rare. I tried to capture photos of it, but it was too fast. Anyway, thought I’d share a photo of today’s excursion.
