Photographer's Note

We had made a trip to St. George, Utah, and weren't thinking about going to Zion NP, but the view over through the storm was magnetic.

It can be such a beautiful place with the contrast of the white snow and the wet dark dark red sandstone. There are always interesting shapes from the trees in the bottom of the canyon.

The temperature was TOO COLD to be using a metal tripod without gloves. What I would have given to have had my wooden tripod!

I placed the exposure for Zone III on the lower values of the dark sandstone. I wasn't concerned about keeping detail in the shadowed bark on the trees. I had to contract development to keep from blowing out the brighter snow values. TMax can provide significant density if not carefully controlled.

I used a K2 filter to reduce red and cut some of the haze from the moisture in the air. A future note, I would use a strong filter as it could have raised the red values some.
