Let It Snow

It’s been snowing here in Zion National Park for a bit over an hour now. Somewhere behind these trees is Lady Mountain, but no mountain is visible at the moment, even though they’re pretty close. Here at Zion Lodge, the snow is sticking to the road making it an ice rink.

Enjoy!

Sunday Sunrise

Sunrise in Zion National Park this morning was absolutely gorgeous! It snowed overnight, and cleared out sometime early this morning.

Fun at 50! (mm that is)

First, let me apologize for my absence.  Work seems to be getting in the way of my photography lately, and I need to get out more.

This past weekend I said enough is enough, and I’m going shooting!  I grabbed my camera and decided to use my 50mm prime lens (which I haven’t used for some time), hopped on the shuttle and went up to the Temple of Sinawava.  It was close to sunset, so light was fading fast and I needed to hurry. IMG_8905 copyEast Mesa

I went to look into the Virgin River to capture a rapid or two.

Right after sunset, I captured the dramatic sense of how deep Zion Canyon really is.

Heading back to the shuttle, I happen to see a bumble bee buzzing around, so I tried my hand at freestyle macro.  By the way, I’ve never seen a bumble bee look like this, anyone else?IMG_8956 copy

After arriving back at the Lodge, I took this of the Mountain of the Sun.  IMG_8973 copy

Wordless Wednesday: Snow

The snow storm finally got here this evening, but earlier today, it was in the cliffs above the Lodge here at Zion National Park.  Looking south at the Mountain of the Sun (if you can see it behind the clouds).  Yes, that is a cottonwood tree on the right, probably the biggest one you’ll ever see.  Over 80 years old and at least 150 feet high.
