Golden Light in The Subway
Zion Wilderness, Zion National Park, Utah, 2015
Slot canyons are some of the few places in the world that look the best in the middle of a cloudless day. As the sun gets higher overhead, sunlight bounces off the tall canyon walls and into the slot, giving a warmth to the scene that isn't really there in mid-March. Spend too much time in that shade and cold water (~42 degrees Fahrenheit when I was there), and you're asking for hypothermia. Photo © copyright by Greg Owens.
