The land of Southern Utah is supernaturally beautiful. Every tree, rock and snowflake appears to have been placed with purpose. If every a man was to be tempted by faith, he would find faith in Zion.
The Utah drivers had us reaching for prayer too. Jim and I had a number of close calls on the State's winding canyon roads. We were rewarded richly with both our lives and scenery nearly impossible to represent truly in a photograph.
This long shot was taken with a tripod and my long lens from a car park in Knob Canyon, on the often overlooked west side of Zion National Park.
