A slightly different take on a classic image from Zion National Park. Any way you shoot this though, Zion Canyon is spectacular, and it really puts you in perspective of the world. When was the last time you visited a US National Park?

Last time I visited a NP was Zion in Nov and it was the 3rd time since Aug. BUT no matter how many times there is always some thing new to see. Was this image taken from the left side of bridge?

No. This is a different location. Too many pictures from that bridge and I wanted to find my own way of showing off the view....

As we were leaving Zion one evening we saw all the photographers lined up on the bridge. Now i know what they were shooting and thinking we should have stopped too--but not sure we could have squeezed in! Beautiful image

I have bnever shot from that bridge. When you see a lot of photographers, yes, it does mean that is a good place.... but it also makes me want to find somewhere else. Sure everyone shoots there becasue they know they will get something good, but in a place as big as Zion, you CAN find other places. Like this- this is NOT that bridge. It is a similar scene... but I like the "S" curve of the river better, and I like the balance of the Tree and the cliff....
