Perhaps Zion's most photographed panorama is the Towers of the Virgin. A good wide angle view of the monoliths is from in front of the Zion Museum, and the best time is at sunrise.
Next to the Towers are also the West Temple and the Altar of Sacrifice, with predomiant white sand stone composition.
Some believe they see the shrouded figure of the Virgin Mary in the center tower.

Exquisitely sharp with excellent depth of field. The pristine blue of the sky with the moon shining brightly makes a superb backdrop for the rock formation.

I do not see here virgin mary but I see this moon on the blue sky. Fantastic colour of the rocks, like in Utah. Superb composition. The trees look so small compared to this wall.

I see this photo has got # ten ten ;) in your gallery. Good composition and the big moon is just a bonus for the picture.
But I'd like to add little bit sharpness. But this is only my opinion.

like this! Always find shots with our nearest celestial neighbour fascinating (see my post today). Lots of textures and warm tones here that demonstrates the majesty of Zion. Looks wonderful beneath a half moon. Awesome!
Have a good weekend - B.

The colours of the blue sky and the brownish rocks are in a very fine harmony here. The rocks are really impressive. A very attractive capture.

Magnificent natural details!
A wonderful place indeed. I want to go back there to stay for a longer period so to enjoy some trails I couldn't do the first time I was there!
Very beautiful picture with excellent colors, light and composition!
TFS - congrats,
