Utah is one my favorite photographic destinations, relatively "close" to home at only 500 miles or so, but always worth the trip. This was shot over 1 year ago, mid-October, on a trip up the Virgin River Narrows. I like this image, but to be honest I never print it bigger than greeting card size, because I managed to get some slight camera movement even though I was using a tripod... not too surprising since the tripod and I were both in moving water and on slippery rocks at the time. A whole day of cold wet feet doesn't help your concentration, either. The contrast of the delicate trees hanging on in the stream against the massive painted walls walls caught my eye, even though it was a rather inconvenient spot to stop and set up. I passed it by on the way upstream, but decided to try it on the return. Relative to my previous post about B&W vs. Color, this is a case where I would say the color is indeed an important element of the image.
