My Favorite Cascade by tourofnature My Favorite Cascade by tourofnature
This is an image a year in the waiting. I returned to Archangel Falls in the Zion National Park back-country (near the famous Subway feature [link] ) in an attempt to get a better overall image than I was able to capture last year.

After much consideration and a few failed attempts, I found a composition I felt represented the falls with the wonder I felt while viewing it with at the time.

Zion NP back-country, Utah.

Awesome capture. I was there the same week with Joe Rossbach's group. I did not make it to the subway this time, but I will definitely hike there next time. :)

At first the foreground stroked me and I thought "wow what an amazing picture", but then my eyes moved across the picture to the falls you see in the distance, and then it just blew my mind.
Amazing shot, great composition.

I'll be glad to see what you capture with the med format here. We were going to the Narrows today but its higher flow than we were expecting, we had waders where we apparently needed wetsuits. I'm tired, we hiked Angel's Landing on Friday night, Canyon Overlook and Subway yesterday, and I hiked around a bit this morning. Thanks for the permit man, it was our group of 3 and only 2 other people all day on the Subway hike. It was real windy and cold but nice to have the whole place to ourselves.
