Zion

Photograph by Victor Novikov

Rising in Utah’s high plateau country, the Virgin River carves its way through Zion Canyon to the desert below. The park’s striking vertical topography—rock towers, sandstone canyons, and sharp cliffs—attracts 2.5 million visitors a year.

I was looking through the top 10 most visited national parks in the United States and Zion came up. Not only is this scenery beautiful, but the way the photo was taken adds to it. I love the long shutter speed on it to give the effect of running water throughout the mountains. I’ve always been fascinated with landscape/nature photos and I would like to play around with a long shutter speed in the near future and get a good shit such as this one.
