I got the opportunity to visit Zion National Park for Thanksgiving and get a little shooting done. This is my first ever star photo and I’m pretty proud of it. I was standing outside the Zion Canyon Museum where the lights were dim, which lit the trees in front of me. The moon was also out and very bright which lit the rock perfectly.
I visited Angels Landing, Utah under unfortunate circumstances, though I am still very happy I got to experience it. My uncle passed away suddenly, so we planned a trip to St. George for the memorial and to scatter his ashes. He asked to have his ashes scattered on top of Angel’s Landing, a hike he and his brothers did when they were younger. Choosing to have your ashes scattered in such a place is a great idea. It brought the family together and got us to do something that probably would have never happened otherwise. It was an amazing hike! When people call it “extreme hiking” they are serious. The last stretch where you have to hold onto chains to keep from falling was pretty scary for some of us. I loved every moment of it. We even got a great family photo when we reached the top. The tragic event, in turn, gave us a great family experience and was a beautiful way to bring us together in his memory.
