The Subway

by Tad Bowman

This photograph was taken in the Zion Naional Park of Utah in a section of the Left Fork River referred to as "The Subway". Although shots from this region are becoming trite, it's still a magical place especially when you get that nice glow coming in the tunnel.
Equipment: Canon EOS 1dsMII, 16-35mm lens, Tripod

Very impressive–totally unlike the usual Zion shots. The colors are amazing, as is the way the leaves show every swirl and eddy of the water. btw–no such thing as a trite nature shot–like snowflakes, no two are alike! Very nice photo.

Great photo skills.. . the edges, colors & water seem to whisper something mythic.

This is by far one of the best Earthshots.
Incredible rhythms of shape and form. Tremendous dynamic range. What masterly exposure! Color harmony! Is it Landscape or abstract fine art!??
Hats off.

great shot indeed. Colors are perfect and the light just falls on the right places. I like the long exposure effect and the angle from which the photo was taken. Just great.

You may call this trite but I have never seen it before, I can understand why it would be much photographed; this is a fantastic shot.
