Zion in Winter by tourofnature Zion in Winter by tourofnature
I recently visited both Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks on a 3 day weekend escape from the city. These are some of my very favorite places and I've visited each in all 4 season's.

During this trip, I wanted to find scenes that would be improved by the empty, solitude of Winter. Also, I wanted to find unique compositions that more accurately share my thoughts on the landscape than say an image that has been reproduced many times by others might. I scouted out the valley during the day, when I saw what I was looking for I went on my way to complete another hike, then returned during the golden hour of sunset light to capture this.

Pre-visualization is key in photography, and knowing the elements of a scene you want to display will help drive you to find new views and execute on your vision.

Great shot Wayson. Every time I've been to Zion, the weather didn't cooperate. Also, Great point on pre-visualization. I need to learn to do more of it.

That is an amazing shot where you have everything set just right to keep everything in the dynamic range. Many people couldn't do a hot like this at all without HDR. Great work!
