Wild Thoughts

This is one of those scenes that seems like it can only exist in my imagination. I remember walking out to this ridge yesterday and seeing a magnificent buck staring right at me. At first I didn't realize there was a second one to the lower right, as luck would have it the one with the majestic antlers was in full view. A moment after this photograph was taken they vanished as though it was just an illusion. Its moments like these that remind me of why I do what I do.

As 2009 comes to an end, I'd like to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season and a great new year!

Last Clouds Of The First Winter Storm

Here is another image I captured after the first snow storm in Zion this year. I took it only a couple days ago and the snow has already disappeared except for a little dusting left on the high sandstone peaks. The clouds you see here are the last stragglers of the opening winter storm which left Zion white for a few short days..... until next time.

First Snowfall in Zion This Winter

While out looking for a snow covered red rock scene I stumbled upon these maples blanketed in a fresh coat of December snow. I decided the unusual amount of leaves left on the branches were worth a shot, especially since they were still red. There is something I love about Zion in the winter that I can't put my finger on. Perhaps its the smell of sage that when wet seems to fill the air, or the piercing quiet of the canyon when draped in a fresh coat of snow. All I know is that its the beginning of winter in Zion, and words cannot express how much I love this canyon!
