Zion's Subway by tourofnature Zion's Subway by tourofnature
I've been wanting to get to this area of Zion National Park for a few years now. Even with my high expectations going in, this amazing place did not disappoint.

Subway, Zion NP backcountry.

Canon 5D. 17-40 L. Circ Polarizer.

This shot was taken a few hundred yards down stream:

When I saw the thumbnail I wasn't too sure what I was looking at, but when I clicked it to see the full view.. wow. This really is something I haven't seen before and it really makes me want to visit Zion now. I must say I haven't heard of it before, probably because it's on the other side of the world since I'm in the Netherlands, but it's definitely on my 'must see' list of gorgeous places. Thanks for showing!

I must agree with what ~parkflavor says, about loving how everything seems to be curving towards the top left. Your eyes really get lead towards the top left.

The layers in the walls really keep me staring, it's a great sight. The puddles of water are beautiful, with such clear water.

Awesome shot, hope to go visit the park myself one day! =)

I live to travel, most of my spare dollars are spent on traveling, although most of my trips are pretty cheap because i'm usually outdoors camping.

Thanks. This is about 5-7 miles away from the entrance, if you ask the rangers they can get you a backcountry permit and give you good directions. I recommend it

Dude, Wayson, this looks awesome. I thought you said none of your subway shots turned out well. I just love how everything is curving toward the top left. Those pools are pretty sweet too, with the water trickling down each level to the next.

My shots facing up river turned out nice, the one facing downstream weren't as good. I can't believe how photogenic that place is, that was an awesome day. I'm planning on featuring you soon so make sure you've got your favorite shots up, after I pass this test we gotta go shooting! Later Chris.
