Collection of photos from hike up the Virgin River Narrows in Zion National Park.
This is the "Bottoms Up" hike. We went as far as Orderville Canyon.
Because of strong midday sun, contrasts and color differentials were difficult to handle.
All Nikon D80; 28-80 f4.0-5.6.
Reflection of river near trailhead.
f10 1/25 sec.
Small rapids downstream from the Narrows hike. Struggled with color on this. Sunlight reflecting off red rock wall was extremely warm.
Rapids along Narrows hike.
f22 0.7 seconds. Could have used longer exposure like above pic.
My son preferred to walk in the river, even when he had the choice - like here. Most of the hike is in the river.

Alcove is section where a hollow has been carved out of the rock by the river. With wide angle adaptor, barely caught both people in canyon and sliver of sky to give a sense of scale.
f8 1/50 sec
I came; I saw; I shot; I shared.
