Fording The Narrows, Zion NP
The Narrows, a slot canyon a thousand feet high, was created by Utah's Virgin River. The Narrows is also one of the great American hikes. I used a long exposure to capture the rushing water in the foreground. I used Lightroom to give the proper weight and girth to the cliffs -- and the delicacy of the plants holding tight. The explorers who arrived at this scene in time were a charmed synchronicity.
