Patience... by parkflavor Patience... by parkflavor
This is one of the least creative photos I've ever taken. And one of the least fun...if you've been there, you know what I mean. But if you hit the Watchman on the right night, you can definitely come away with a good shot, even if it's totally cliche.

Wow, I logged in today to find that this became a DD. A big thanks to you guys for all the positive feedback. It seems like many of you are wondering what I meant in the description above. This photo is taken in Zion National Park and is a "trophy shot" that everyone seems to want. It is super easy to get to, taken from a bridge that is about 50 feet long and every evening, photographers line up, shoulder to shoulder (especially in the fall), jostling for position. It would be a much more fun experience if it were a little harder to get to so that you had some personal space.

Thanks again for all the support!

Reminds me of Marc Adamus' work, which I mean as a compliment :)

The river and those yellow trees draw you out of their shadow and into the wonderful warm light against the rock face. I think you under estimated your shot, Ill just agree with others and say you have captured wonderful image.

Wow, the thumbnail looked like a painting, but this is a photo? This is an amazing shot! I love the intense colors and the way the light hits the mountains. I'm sorry that it was not a fun photo to take, but it's enjoyable to look at ;P Thank you
