Zion Magic

Leaves in Oily Water

Back in Zion. Like visiting an old friend. I learn a little more of her nuances each year. But the mysterious power of this place never ceases to humble and amaze me. The leaves here rest in oily water reflecting late afternoon blue sky. Last year this spot was nearly bone dry.


It's a landscape that has to be seen to be believed. And, as I say on occasion, it may have to be believed in order to be seen.
