Subway Cascades

Uploaded: February 25, 2017 | Entered: February 25, 2017 19:28:11


This pictures was taken on a precarious but beautiful hike to the Subway in Zion National Park. Wow! What a hike. We climbed the face of the mountain in pure darkness with headlamps for light for the last quarter mile of the hike but we came away with some wonderful memories. This is a panorama of the Cascades just before the Sunway. The original photo of this shot is over 10,000 pixels long. It will make a really nice print for my wall I think. I used a 5 stop neutral density filter to allow me to lengthen my exposure.
