Zion National Park | Sunrise

Zion National Park is a special place and is a location that I highly recommend visiting at least once in your lifetime. The valley walls, which extend thousands of feet straight up have been carved out in part by the Virgin River. The rivers meandering path provides for many great opportunities for grand scenes such as in the image below.

I set up my tripod with one of the legs in the river and made sure to use a somewhat slower shutter speed to create some movement in the water. I used the partially overcast skies, sometimes an issue in landscape photography, to my advantage. The clouds worked sort of like a large soft box in the sky, which created a diffused light and helped open up some of the shadows within the valley floor.
