This is my personal favorite
image from my recent trip to the Southwest.
The Narrows in Zion are truly phenomenal. After wading knee-deep in the beautiful Virgin River, we came upon this majestic location. Colorfully-carved 2,000 ft. sandstone walls surround me as I stand in disbelief. The canyon walls radiate in vibrant, warm hues and I was in position to capture a glorious scene.Read This:

National Geographic's Adventure Magazine rated hiking the Virgin River Narrows in Zion #5 in its list of America's best 100 adventures. Post-Processing:
