Riverside Walk entrance, Zion National Park
Springdale, Utah 10-15-12
Last October, I flew to Las Vegas, Nevada and drove up to Springdale, Utah to participate in a landscape photo workshop at Zion National Park . The very popular Riverside Walk is an easy 2 mile round trip along the Green River into Zion Canyon .
This iphone image was first processed in-camera with the HDR effect, then tweaked a bit in Adobe Lightroom 4. It shows one of the many exposed rock walls in the park. The presence of so much greenery is indicative of the availability of water in Zion Canyon. The Zion Canyon scenic drive ends here, where the sheer walls tower 3000 feet from the canyon floor. The parking area is empty because private cars are not allowed in this part of the park from April through October. Visitors board shuttle buses at the park entrance.

This photoblog is my nature journal and travelogue. Many of my wildlife images were made in environments impacted by humans. My goal is to feature each animal in a way that allows the viewer to sense the essence of its life in the wild. The purpose of the accompanying narratives is to enhance awareness and appreciation of our natural world, as well as to inspire everyone to protect and care for it.
