Tree in the Narrows


Zion National Park, Utah

November 5, 2015narrows 1721.6 mm: ISO 500: f/4.5: 1/15 sec.

Probably about a mile into our hike into the Narrows, I spotted this tree.  With the morning sun in the canyon, all the trees were a bright yellow or green color.  Not wanting to miss good light at a better location, I shot this hand held at a speed much slower than I normally would shoot handheld.  I had to crop it down and darken some parts that were blown out in order to expose the darker shadow.  While I am sure the Narrows are beautiful all the time, the fall color added some contrast and the morning light after sunrise was great.
