River of Time
Watercolor Painting of Virgin River at Temple of Sinawava Zion National Park
About this Item
The usually placid and peaceful Virgin River runs the length of Zion Canyon. Jagged cliffs rise above it thousands of feet. One of my greatest pleasures while in Zion National Park is to hike on foot from The Temple of Sinawava down-canyon following the meandering river beneath the yellow autumn canopy of Cottonwood Trees. I captured this scene when the light poured through the leafy rooftop creating an unbelievable glow in the canyon.
