Bend in the Virgin River

Bend in the Virgin River

Cottonwood trees line the Virgin River as it exits the Narrows and flows into Zion Canyon

As we exited the Narrows and began the hike back downstream, the trail followed the Virgin River for a while. We had been in such a hurry to make it into the Narrows that we hadn’t taken the time to stop along the way in. Now that we were out before sunset, we stopped a few times to soak in the incredible beauty of the Virgin River deep in Zion Canyon. This shot was taken during one of those stops. The shot is a single exposure of 2.5 seconds shot at f/14 in order to capture the depth of field necessary to keep the river and surrounding cottonwoods in focus. Perhaps it would have been more beautiful deep in the Narrows, but it is still a nice capture of beautiful Zion Canyon. Enjoy.
