Kolob Canyon
Lens: Pentax 17-70 mm Camera: Pentax K-5 Photo Location: Zion National Park ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/20s Aperture: F9.5

Kolob Canyon is in the northwestern part of Zion National Park and doesn't get nearly as many visitors as Zion Canyon. It's a great place to go for a sunset. You can park the car and take a one mile easy hike to this vantage point, set up your tripod, and just fire away,

It looks like a great place! I did a quick search on Wikipedia, it is really a stunning place, worth to visit. But I live too much far...
Very nice shot!

like you said Jerry, not as visited as Zion, but worth the drive up the freeway to the park. This is a great representation of the area, reminds me of Box Canyon there.

Thanks phoenix vision! You're right, it is hard to resist pumping up these colors sometimes. As I said, one often needs to desaturate under certain lighting conditions.

Thank you! But Italy has no shortage of beautiful scenery either so I think you're OK for a while.

Thanks Rob. You'd like this area, very reminiscent of the Olgas rock formation in central Australia.

Thanks Bob. It was your posts of Kolob Canyon some time ago that made me want to go look at it on this trip. Glad I did!
