Morning light on sandstone can be particularly vibrant.

O. M. G. You really make me wish I'd gone through the effort to get a permit when I was down there... next time! Gorgeous composition. Great perspective.

You should definitely have gotten a permit. It's worth it. Though, it can take a few days with the whole "lottery" system. I lucked-out, and happened to arrive just minutes before the lottery started. There were about 45 people in the ranger station, but luckily enough, I was one of the names they called. On any given day, there will be 40-80 people trying for permits; this sounds discouraging, I know, but if you aren't selected, the rangers will add an additional number in the lottery tumbler for your party. Thus, the odds of being selected become pretty good after a few days.

Conversely, you can sign up for this online, apparently, but I think it's booked ~ a year in advance.

Yes - those odds discouraged me right out of trying for it. I felt getting into the subway was enough of a risk/hassle! But your gallery has inspired me to go for it next time. :)

Ah I've been here. I think on that very spot....
I may or may not have been on top of that one. It was either that one or one of the ones close by to get some nice pictures for my family. I would like to go out there again, it is a beautiful place.

The colors are amazing. I've seen some beautiful colors in desert pictures, but these are incredibly vibrant. :+fav:

Indeed, the colors of this place are pretty amazing. If you hit it just right during the morning hours, everything in the area vibrantly glows. Pretty amazing to see.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks, John.

I'm actually tentatively planning another trip with my new gear. So, later this year, I'll have all sorts of Zion/Paria/Escalante images to post. New ones, at long last.

Wow, when I look at this photo I actually feel like reaching out and trying to feel the texture of the cliffs.
This is a beautiful photo that completely catches me. The lines, hierarchy and strong colours are stunning.
Great work.

It's an amazing place, there's no doubt about it. The abundance of swirling lines made me feel as if I were in some kind of fantasy land; as if I'd left Earth entirely. Certainly worth a visit for anyone who appreciates nature.

Thanks for stopping by.

I've been here! It was so pretty! I kinda got us a little lost, we went out of the way about a hour....but it was great fun! And so pretty! I got up in a lot of places and took some great pics! I would love to get back there. They only allow twenty people a day. It was worth it to hike to this place. Just like Chaco canyon.
