Hi there Patrick,
I was going to say it is a long time from I have seen such a beautiful shot but that is not absolutely true tonight as last evening I looked at shots on a site belonging to a colleague of yours from Scotland where their were also many beautiful exposures.
As the previous responder states you are fortunate in being able to see this sort of beauty never mind being in a position to capture it on film.
Many congrats on what is a truly marvellous exposure. Thanks for sharing it. #1112236

Nice composition Patrick and choice of shutter speed. I have been to Zion many times and would like to know if this picture, which I assume is the Virgin River is near the Lodge and what time of year. Again, a great professional looking image. #1127332
