When people think of autumn color, they usually think of places like the northeastern US or Smoky Mountains. Here in the southwest, we get our seasonal change in patches, rather than sprawling hillsides. That usually means canyons, and one of the best displays for autumn is Zion National Park, Utah. Perhaps it’s the tall canyon walls protecting the trees from the winds that could drop the leaves before the colors peak, but conditions are very favorable here for a great autumn display. And just because the scene is alive with color, it doesn’t mean you need to be capturing it that way. The original for this was captured on Kodak Pan-X 4×5 film.
This is my addition to Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness this week. Photos from others as well as instructions to join in can be found on her website.
