"Forest-Spirit Zion National Park, Utah" By Robert Park

Via Flickr:
As my Jeep climbed the long road to the Kolob plateau section of Zion Ithe road began to disappear in a dense cloud of fog and evenually we were enveloped in snow as the car pushed higher. I reached the summit to find the snowy fog moving through the edge of the forest. Like a silent spirit moving through the trees, the fog began to reveal the forest. I was moved by this stand of trees that seemed inhabited and covered in a fresh dusting of powdery snow. Location Zion National Park, Utah

"Awakening" Antelope Canyon, By Robert Park http;

Via Flickr:
“Awakening” Antelope Canyon is one of the most famous and most photographed canyons on earth. It is beautiful - you gasp with wonder when you see sunlight dancing on the canyon’s sculpted walls as it picks up the red color and creates an etherial glow. The beams of light come from small cracks at the top as the sun passes overhead during certain times of the day and year. The beams do not last very long and will actually move across the width of the floor before your eyes until the beam disappears lasting a few minutes. You don’t really hike through it, you descend down ladders into it and wonder. It is extremely beautiful, with just the right combination of depth, width, length, rock color and ambient light. It is challenging to photograph here but if you are properly prepared and experienced, the results can be beyond words. It is a must, to experience this location of natural sculpture and glowing canyon walls of sandstone at least once in your lifetime. Location Antelope Canyon, © RobertPark

Sculptural Elegance” Metate Arch — Easy to find and drive to, near the beginning of the famous Hole-in-the-Rock Road out of the town of Escalante, this pretty little arch gets lots of visitors compared to the nearby ones down in the canyons. The two-tone coloration of the left column is unusual and attractive. The span itself is only about a foot wide, and rounded on top… located in Devil’s Garden on the Hole-in- the-Rock Road in Escalante-Grand Staircase National Monument, Utah. © Robert Park

Toroweap Point" Toroweap Point offers the most magnificent view in the entire Grand Canyon. The view is dramatic because the cliff is nearly vertical, dropping almost straight down some 3,000 feet to the Colorado River. The viewpoint offers a dramatic view of the middle part of the Grand Canyon National Park. © Robert Park

"Horseshoe Bend" By Robert Park

Via Flickr:
Horseshoe Bend’” I have photographed this area numerous times, yet the sense of drama, space, and magic had eluded me for many years due to the deep canyon and harsh light of the desert. I had envisioned a twilight image with streams of light cascading across the sky, giving a soft gentle glow to the deep gorge that lay ahead of me. I spent four nights in Page, Arizona waiting on the edge of a storm until the conditions were correct. On the third day a light snowfall precluded a successful image, however on the last day the storm began to clear. Beautiful threads of light and clouds streamed across the sky, while the foreground basked in the radiant glow. It was then that I created Horseshoe Bend. Located at Page, Arizona. © Robert Park
