Driving the main road along the Virgin River in the valley floor of Zion Canyon, I was struck by the blue sky reflecting off the river as it curved away with the yellow trees and red sandstone of the canyon walls in the background. After 15 minutes of wrestling the tripod through the brush covered riverbank, we were in position to take this shot.

I like the way the diagonal line of the water leads the viewer into the picture and then the sweep of the yellow trees takes the viewers eyes around the bend deeper into the picture where the light shines on the distant canyon wall.

  1. Lord of Leisure was previously known in these posts as Mr. Science. Both Lord of Leisure and Mr Science spend most of their time disguised as Neil Ellis, mild-mannered, retired teacher at a great suburban school system, who can identify a bird by its call, complete the New York Times Friday Crossword in ink, and snap a heck of a photo.
