Home Away from Home

I must admit, I love calling the red rocks of Zion Canyon my home year round, but also feel at home wandering through the mountains in forests full of aspens, pine, and maple trees. I recently visited Northern Utah's Wasatch Mountains and found some beautiful scenes unfolding before my eyes.  One of my favorites from the trip is this shot of Maple Mountain with its peaks lit up at sunrise.  I captured it with my Hasselblad H4D and HCD35-90mm lens. I also used a Lee .9 soft graduated neutral density filter to hold back the highlights from blowing out in the sky.
