Toloache Before The Throne
Photo By Bradley Kroll

  • Title: Toloache Before The Throne
  • State/Province/Region: Utah
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Town: Springdale
  • Notes: I chased this photo for about 3 years, driving from Las Vegas to Zion on the weekends during storm season. Finally one morning all conditions collided, large plants in bloom, passing rain storm and consistant lighting. After dodging a few lightning bolts I was able to set up and catch the recent rain settling on these beautiful flowers. Having The Great White Throne in the background is iconic to Zion National Park.
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • Description: These Moonflowers or Toloache, are elusive as they are beautiful, opening early morning and staying open only a short time during the AM hours. Some develop a purple tinting around the edges and some are pure white. Many Native Americans have used the plant for hallucinations and rites of passage.
  • Gear: Nikon D300 Nikkor AF-S 12-24

    Thanks Laura, really appreciate it. I have printed it large several times, and really shines. We'll see!

    Wow, this is just spectacular, and reading the backstory makes it even more so. I hope I see this in a double spread!
