Interesting Photo of the Day: Down the Narrows

If you’ve visited Zion National Park in Utah, chances are that you’re familiar with the Narrows. The Narrows is, as you can imagine, the narrowest section of the Zion Canyon with walls a thousand feet tall and the river about twenty to thirty feet wide. This is also one of the most popular areas of the park. And since there’s no trail to hike to the Narrows, you’ll need to get your feet wet walking in the Virgin River. This makes the hike quite an interesting and thrilling one. Photographer TJ Drysdale took the following image of his girlfriend at the Narrows which appears no less than a scene straight out of some wizard movie:

Drysdale took this image at Wall Street in the Narrows at Zion National Park. He shot it at around 4 pm when it was getting dark in the canyon. He used a Sony A7RIV camera with the 28-75mm lens at 75mm and f/3.5 to get this shot.

Some may argue that the colors of the rocks and the water is quite different from reality. But, we must accept that the color grading does full justice to the image. Even the choice of the cloak is perfect as its bright color is striking against the dark background.

And the fact that the subject is turned away from the camera, looking into the water adds a greater sense of mystery in the image. It’s almost as if she’s looking to summon a bridge out of nowhere. Awesome fantasy vibes!

This is truly a phenomenal work by the photographer. What do you think of the image? Let us know in the comments.
