One of the most pleasant walks in Zion is along the banks of the Virgin River to the Gateway to the Narrows. On this chilly autumn day a few cottonwoods still cling to their brilliant yellow fall foliage while others have already adopted the stark poses of winter. The sun casts its warm, life giving glow on the red Navajo sandstone cliffs. The river is calm and peaceful, reflecting and mirroring the breathtaking beauty through which it softly flows. The canyon prepares itself for gentle winter, a time to sleep, before the cycle starts again with the vigor of spring. Landscape photographers are richly blessed. We get to shed the distractions of daily life and open our eyes, minds and hearts to the beauty that surrounds us. We see delightful moments of composition and light that we then get to share with others. Our souls are cleansed and enriched and hopefully yours too.
