I have no idea which day this is…maybe 5. It was a long time spent in Zion last year! I exposed 12 sheets of film on this day on 5 different subjects. This makes the most film I’ve ever burned through in a single day. It was a busy but really fun day! Most of the shots were pretty laid back and actually didn’t even require any extended, difficult hiking. That’s the amazing part about Zion National Park. You can exert as much or as little energy as you want and still find some great subjects. Thanks for following along, and I hope you enjoy!

In this last episode of the trip I remain in Zion National Park and use my 4×5 large format view camera to photograph the amazing Fall colors in the main canyon and the east side washes of the upper plateau.

On Day 3 of my 2016 trip to Zion National Park, I started out like so many other days in Zion…watching sunrise at the Towers of the Virgin. This is a very popular spot, and there are often many photographers there to capture the beautiful light. I don’t mind though. There is just something about watching the sun work its way down those massive sandstone peaks. It gets me excited about spending a day in the park!

This is a shot that I’ve taken in the past, but I wanted something a little different. Previously, I’ve taken the shot with the Towers in full sun. This time around, I wanted to take the shot a bit earlier when the light was a little more blue and subdued. I used a 2-stop hard edge grad ND filter to control the light and fired off a one second exposure on Velvia 50. I did not get to take my usual second shot, because clouds came in and killed off all light after my first exposure. I was nervous not having a backup, but thankfully the shot turned out really well.

From there, my parents and I grabbed some souvenirs and headed up to the Northwest corner of the park. This section is much less crowded but has spectacular scenery in its own right. We decided to make the 6 mile hike up the Middle Fork of Taylor Creek that ends at the Double Arch Alcove. On our way in, I took a shot of some pines against a reflected light wall. There was some interesting layering in effect, but the light wasn’t the strongest. I will say though, despite my initial misgivings about the shot, I am happy with how it turned out.

Finally, after 3 miles in, we reached the Double Arch Alcove. This alcove has, in my opinion, the most spectacular example of reflected light in the entire park. The orange colors simply must be seen to be believed! I had a difficult time composing though. For starters, I don’t quite have a wide enough lens to get the entire sandstone wall. It is massive! At the base of the wall is a mixture of maples and cottonwoods that were surprisingly still holding onto their leaves. I decided to take a shot incorporating this color and only a small portion of the wall. And the colors on Velvia are NUCLEAR!!! However, this is pretty close to reality as hard as that may be to believe. Like I said, the light in this area is really spectacular.

We finished up our day much as it started…watching sunlight traverse sandstone pillars. Just your typical magical day in Zion. Why haven’t I moved there yet???

In this episode I explore Long Canyon along the Burr Trail in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in south central Utah where the Fall color and reflected light were spectacular.

Day 6 of my trip to Zion National Park . This day started well before sunrise for the hike up the Left Fork of North Creek to Zion’s Subway. The conditions were absolutely perfect and I was able to come away with three shots.

In this video journal, I hope on my bike, then head into the park to see if I can find some subjects to photograph. NO DRONES were used in the filming of this video, they are illegal in all US National Parks.The clips at 1:10, 1:39 & 7:09 were filmed with a Sony RX100 and a string cam fixed between two trees away from anyone else.
