Zion Country by tourofnature Zion Country by tourofnature
As often happens with nature photography, I abandoned plans of shooting one location and followed the clouds to another. Just as I was scrambling for a composition the sky started to glow... one of the better sunrises I've seen in a long time.

Virgin River, Zion National Park, Utah.

Canon 5D. 24-105 L. Circ Polarizer.

Unfortunately, No. I have been trying to figure out where the next big adventure should be... I am thinking the 4 corners - but there is soooo much out there to see!! You?

I was just out in Zion last week on Ian Plant's workshop, and we didn't see any clouds like this the whole week.

Great shot. Love the color and the composition.

Yah, I got pretty damn lucky with those clouds. I actually met Ian the last day in the narrows, he found a great comp that I missed. Other than the cloudless skies, how did the workshop go?

It was great. I learned a lot and had a great time. It was good to be there with someone that knows a lot about shooting locations and everything. Ian's a good guy, I would definitely take another workshop with him.
