My family and I briefly ventured into Zion National Park in Utah, making it my fourth National Park, but sadly, I did not take a photo by the sign. It was beautiful and quite majestic. For odd reasons, I wasn’t in a photographic mood, so mostly I just observed. At times, that is the best decision. Connecting with your subject ranks highest in priority than photographing it. The day was overcast but as we decided to leave the park, a bit of sunshine greeted us and I saw THIS. I knew right then and there that would be the only photograph of Zion I’d need for the day. And it was.

Hope to visit again in the future and explore a few of the trails. I am nowhere near as hardcore to attempt “The Narrows” trail. But it sounds like this shiz.

Have first day of February!

    Love the photo and your honesty. I think sometimes it’s easy to feel obligated to love taking our cameras with us, everywhere, all the time. GORGEOUS PHOTO. One amazing photo = totally better than 35 random snapshots, documenting the day.

      I find it difficult at times to visit a place like Zion and take photos at the same time. Sometimes I ‘m just so awed and inspired. I am glad I took this one, though. And thank you!!!!
