Patriarchs of Zion
"Patriarchs of Zion"
Zion National Park, Utah, USA
I visited Zion National Park recently with a mission... to capture a majestic and unique perspective that I had not seen before. Although I did take time to capture the "classics," such as the view of The Watchman and the Canyon Overlook, I was lucky to come across a wondrous find. One morning while meandering up the canyon, I drove on and while looking out the window I saw the highlights on the mountain tops. I decided to wander down to the shore of the Virgin River, and it was there I saw this reflective scene.
I present to you a winter sunrise along the Virgin River in Zion. Captured here are two of the three monumental mountains named as a tribute to the Old Testament fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The end of winter is near, as green buds began to spring from the trees and shrubs, visible in this shot. What a marvelous morning to capture nature's beauty!
