Temple of Sinawava - Zion Canyon

Posted by Scott F. Schilling (San Martin, United States) on 15 November 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Cloudy skies provided soft natural lighting to shoot at this beautiful location in Zion Canyon. The Fall color surrounded these rock formations centered in a large ampitheatre along the Virgin River.

Nikon D3 2/5 seconds F/16.0 ISO 250 25 mm

Beautiful.
I saw it at summertime, with dry rocks and green trees.
Completly different.

Just tremendous, Scott...I love your wonderful perspective and this is a great pano crop...the temple really takes center stage even more than usual because of the crop and framing. The soft light is tremendous and in conjunction with the wonderful colors of the "walls" and rock, it all brings an "Incan" feel to the entire scene! The color contrasts are tremendous...I really MUST get back to Zion in the fall next time ;-) Just a phenomenal image here ;-)

What an awesome image, Scott ... the trees all look like they're miniatures against the beautiful rock wall.

I like very much this fringe of vegetation which puts a touch of life in this warm but dry rock

Good artistic framing in this. It gives the illusion that the scene can, and does, go on and on. I like the horizontal tree line against the vertical cliff.
