On our way to Colorado, we stopped and got some food in St. George for nice little sunset picnic in Zion National Park. We got to park just as the sun was setting over with the remained of the light shining through the haze on Watchman.

Such beautiful light on a stunning landscape. I'm particularly drawn to the luminous valley in the far distance. Lovely work.

Over and over again you find the most magnificent or strange sceneries in the US and elsewhere and always return with photos of great artistic value. This composition and handling of light and colors should all be the envy of most photographers.

This looks like a very beautiful painting with these delicate colours. The river bends through the picture and this line continues up along the slope. Excellent colours!
HimalAnda (10325) 2014-01-15 12:13
Yet another beautiful picture in your portfolio!
The light is beautiful, the composition is good.

Hello Way ne Lim
This is a great picture!
The river leads my eye right into the picture, past the trees and shrubs, and on to the mountains in the background,which are lit by the setting sun.
Very nicely composed.
Royaldevon (34655) 2014-01-15 13:04
The light in this shot is stunning; it has illuminated the cliff tops, as the sky begins to turn golden.
I like how you have used the snaking river, rippling over stones, as a very effective guide from the f/g towards the aforementioned cliffs.
A most beautiful photograph.
My warm regards,

un paesaggio fantastico, grazie anche alla qualità della tua foto, veramente bella, sembra di esserci.
Inquadratura perfetta e bellissima luce, complimenti.
npecanhuk (71976) 2014-01-15 16:01
Sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov and composition are all oustanding photo qualities, as usual, that really pleased me a lot!
TFS - congrats,
delpeoples (56002) 2014-01-15 18:35
Ciao Oh Naughty One
Jeez that diffused light through the haze is magical. I would have stuffed it completely and over-exposed on the right of the frame for sure. The colours are beautifully rich and I can't take my eyes off how the light has turned that mountain face into a wall of gold. Simply stunning and an immaculate post processing.
Hugs, hope you're behaving
jjcordier (79289) 2014-01-15 23:27
Un paysage magnifique et une lumière délicate donnant beaucoup de charme et d'intérêt à cette belle composition.
emka (89253) 2014-01-15 23:42
charming view from Zion National Park. With sunset light it looks so differently than in bright sunny day. marvelous composition wuth the curve of the river giving depth, amazing view of the rocks kissed by the late sun.
Have a nice day
dkmurphys (54417) 2014-01-15 23:43
Superb capture along the mountain river. Perfect pov and colors, wonderful work.
Enjoy a fine day.
papagolf21 (93058) 2014-01-15 23:50
Voilà une photographie qui s'apparente à un merveilleux tableau où la nature est reine.
Les couleurs, la lumière, tout est parfaitement mis en valeur.
Un réel plaisir à contempler.
kabel (1912) 2014-01-15 23:55
Hello Way, wonderful point of view that allows us to peer down the river and up to the peaks of Zion. This image really exemplifies what the park is about. Those high mountains and the red rocks along with the green tree wilderness.
Subhogen (4067) 2014-01-16 0:32
This superb photo could well be an exquisite oil painting by an acclaimed artist. The landscape is undoubtedly beautiful but it has been made more eye catching by your perfect capture with good composition. Such warm and lovely light on the cliffs they seem to be made of gold. A truly spectacular photo perfect on all aspects. Thanks for sharing.
danos (92502) 2014-01-16 3:19
a dimaond in your portfolio.The last rays of the sun as falling on the top of the Mt. making it to look 'gold'.The small creek penatrates this section of Zion park lead-in the eye on the backdrop haze atmosphere,making the scenery even more effective.Well done.
lousat (85018) 2014-01-16 4:05
Hi Way,it's very difficult ot find new words to comment your pics,always a step ahead and always a great pleasure to watch,fantastic view and spectacular place and quality in the usual elegant big white frame,i like it!! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano
timecapturer (49288) 2014-01-16 4:19
this is sublime. I always look forward to your postings and this is another beauty. The light and management here are flawless and the whole effect inspiring and irresistible. Stunning image. Love it!
Kielia (24077) 2014-01-16 7:57
another fantastic image! Excellent photo work, you have chosen an outstanding POV to capture this spectacular landscape. The light even enhances its beauty. The image almost looks like a painting. My compliments!
abmdsudi (48705) 2014-01-16 9:09
That subtle sunset is well worth waiting, but what impresses me about this image is that there is just the right amount of exposure and shade throughout the composition. It looks a lot better than the usual silhouette type of image in that getting a foreground is difficult and it works best here and the light of the setting sun works to good advantage overall. There's some good texture in the rock formation catching the attention and green foliage add lot of life too while the stream stretches the depth so smoothly. It's tranquility personified and pleasure to view, Congrats
SimoAle (646) 2014-01-16 9:22
posso votare ad occhi chiusi ogni tuo lavoro!
Splendida cartolina degli USA che regalano colori spettacolari.
nikkitta (17064) 2014-01-16 11:07
Sublime, stunning, magical, wonderful, amazing are some of the adjetives I saw in the comments that you well deserved
This kind of composition revels a true artist, a master with the light, so well adjusted at the sky and more eye catching on the golden mountains at the back
Good place to rest listening the sound of the running water while enjpying the landscape
So you knew about wind chime, and their quite true, always differents sounds
jcpix (13846) 2014-01-16 18:00
Even more so than the beauty of the natural landscape, the atmosphere you've captured and rendered from this shot steals the show for me. I can vividly imagine standing in that spot, listening to the gentle sounds of the river and soaking up the days last light. This is remarkably balanced in both composition and exposure. Such distinct detail and warm tones from top to bottom, making this an enviable location and scene for all to admire. Thanks for sharing another compelling image from the Southwest. Enjoy the day ahead.
claudeD (36574) 2014-01-17 9:38
wonderul picture very well composed with a very good light managment and excellent clarity. The river is guiding our view into the picture.TFS. I like the view very much.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
PaulVDV (25519) 2014-01-18 1:08
The river curves slowly into the direction of the orange sunlit mountain range.
The green of the trees and the vegetation contrasts well with the reddish rocks.
Best regards, Paul
tatadalou (7305) 2014-01-18 10:32
Another great landscape, with a nice light on the top of the hills. The trees beautifully contrasts with the red land. That's really wonderful. Regards,
SnapRJW (31629) 2014-01-18 23:35
Hello Way - I'm a bit behind with my critiques so forgive me for my late response to this shot. What a place for a picnic! A classic composition with such superb light across the rocky peaks. I really like the 'brightness' of the two tress on either side of the river as they give definition to what could easily be a jumble of competing and confusing detail. Nicely done! Warm regards Rosemary
rigoletto (34279) 2014-01-19 14:48
hi way. wow, this is a great photo to satisfy my obsession about rounding the points, in this case from 68 to 70 :))
looking at the delicate processing on light and colors, i remembered the lesson on layers henk jacobs (oochappan) had given to me on his laptop, good old days. beautiful wilderness and immaculate presentation of it. bravo!
COSTANTINO (61383) 2014-01-20 13:37
wonderful view almost magic of this
landscape the river bends through
the picture I liked very much how
you used this snaking river
have a nice new day
mkamionka (33601) 2014-01-21 6:11
another breath taking view. I like how well you have balanced the exposition here with the foreground in shade and yet we can admire all the details. The last rays of light subtly touch the characteristic red rock mountains of Zion. he river makes a very strong point of the composition enhancing well the interest.
Zion is one of my favourite parks and I would love to get back there again. I don't remember this particular spot, I have to see my own archives...
fabbs99 (17129) 2014-01-23 20:32
Amazing landscape shot of the setting sun and a real picturesque surrounding with a little HDR effect.Nice colors and lightings.Very well done,TFS.
adores (42217) 2014-02-07 17:08
Seems it was a wise decision! The photo is very good, as usual, and the landscape is magnificent, specially at this moment of the day. Light is just perfect and you got very good detail.
Didi (59634) 2014-03-11 8:05
the river looks like the Loire river close to it's source
Just the river, not the rocky background
Very fantastic wild place far from noisy towns
Angshu (56738) 2014-07-18 0:08
Its a shame that I have not visited your gallery for such a long time!
What a delightful scenery you present here as the distant peaks are enriched by the golden light. The stream in the FG is a good lead-in. Fine exposure contrast well handled...
Hope you are doing good!
Have a good WE
