I was fortunate to be at Zion National Park several days after a light snow. It was my second time at the park within a week. Earlier in the day we wrapped up the workshop that I attended and was so moved by our visit Zion I had to go back. I overheard several people during the workshop mention a certain tree that photographer John Shaw “made famous”. When I arrived at Zion for the second time it was on the top of my shot list. This tree was behind me when I made this photograph.
The only traces of the recent snow were small puddles like this. The photographs of the tree I set out to capture turned out nice but I am much happier with this one comparatively.
Want to make more interesting photographs? Sometimes you just need to turn around.
