"Virgin Bend" [3.5:1]
Zion National Park, Utah, USA
180-degree panorama of a bend of the Virgin River in the Narrows of Zion National Park. During winter the river flow slows to this mellow pace, providing opportunities to capture scenes from the river up to the mountain canyon walls, without summer vegetation.
Amazing as it may be, this particular shot is a first for me on FineArtAmerica, as it is an iPhone shot. I was amazed at the clarity, depth, and color. Not trying to be a salesman here, but when the camera features of a phone are this good, you can not deny it. Nice job Apple.
"The Narrows in Zion National Park, (near Springdale, Utah) is a section of canyon on the North Fork of the Virgin River. The hike of The Narrows is one of the premier hikes on the Colorado Plateau. The term The Narrows refers to both the through-hike of The Narrows, and to The Narrows themselves, especially the 3.6 miles (5.8 km) long section of canyon between the end of the Riverside Walk Trail and Big Spring. The Narrows lies north of, and upstream of, the main Zion Canyon. Hiking the Narrows was rated # 5 in the National Geographic ranking of America's Best 100 Adventures" [source: Wikipedia].
