Swoops and Swirls
Ferns wave in gentle canyon breezes as layers and contours form a myriad designs on canyon walls above the Virgin River in the Wall Street section of The Narrows. This scene looks downstream in mid-day when the sunlight bounces down the thousand-foot walls. [Three captures hand-blended for focus stacking and dynamic range.]
Narrows Notes: I was startled when I reached the end of Wall Street and the canyon began to open up again. I had no idea I had hiked that far and it was still not quite Noon. Disbelieving, I had to confirm with other hikers that we were indeed all the way through. At that point, I headed back down-river to catch the mid-day light and take a detour up the Orderville side canyon.
