Somptueuse et grandiose photo d'un paysage de rêve, la couleur de la rivière, l'arbre du premier plan et le sommet plein de lumière en arrière-plan, photo très suggestive de la grandeur de la nature. Merci Jack.

I didn't know Zion (haven't had enough time)... but it's looks beautiful... the tree on the foreground is just GORGEOUS. A splendid nature indeed. Thanks for this image.

@zOOm: All of the parks of the American Southwest offer spectacular photographic opportunities. Although it doesn't show in this photograph, Zion has the most massive rock formations. In Zion you can easily start photographing at least an hour before sunrise. During the middle of the day, it is ideal to hike the Narrows (of the Virgin River). Everyone has their favorite park; mine is Bryce.

An absolutely beautiful photograph, with so much to please the eye. Gorgeous lighting and detail. First class

Yes you're right, Bryce is the best ! I went in the US in 1978 (i was 14 years old ! )and I can tell that I will NEVER forget it.

Beautiful landscape picture. The light on the tree and the top of the mountain is wonderful. I like also the composition with the river to enter in the picture.

A very lovely landscape. It has a wonderful almost delicate quality.

I like the brightness of the tree mirrored by the brightness of the mountain top.

That is the same tree in my image, Jack, but in yours it is glowing! We were just about in the same place on the bridge. I like how you got the curve of the river in the frame. Wonderful morning light on the peak. Nice to see this scene in springtime as well.
