Sunset at Canyon Junction

I claim a big zero for originality on this shot. It's the most photographed spot in all of Zion National Park. Every night, you'll see an army of photographers, working to get a shot from this iconic spot. Yet, no matter how many times I visit Zion, i always find myself right there with them. On this particular night, I had actually hiked down in to the river to get this shot from a different angle, which probably made me none too popular with the photographers who's shot I was standing in. But, as I headed back to the car, this scene opened I ran to the bridge and snapped it. The sky was amazing.....I did a poor job of locking my tripod down so it isn't as sharp as I would have liked, but it came out OK all the same.
