Zion, part 2

Zion is an amazing place. I think I've been there a dozen times now and each time I go, I'm overwhelmed by the immensity and beauty of the place. I can't tell you how many times I've either walked into a bush or tripped over a rock because I was too busy staring at the scenery to pay any attention to where I was going. Zion is endlessly bursting with colors -- reds, whites and blacks on the sheer canyon walls standing guard over the river and life below; greens, yellows and reds of the vivid vegetation tucked in here and there and everywhere that water flows; the deepest blue and hottest white of the desert sky. It's heart-stoppingly gorgeous. If you have a Life List, make sure Zion is on it.

Here are a few Holga/Fuji Superia 100 photos... many more to come. Enjoy!

In this one, I really only like the sky. The bottom third of the photo is dark and cold looking...guess you can't win 'em all. I do however think it would be 100x better if it were bigger and the detail of the shady parts could stand out. Because I am sure there is a ton of detail down there that would pull the entire image together.

...but then again, after I look at it more and more, I think it is all about the shapes and the direction. It really is a nice image. Very well shot and obviously choreographed.
