My Heart Returns

As much as I may love San Francisco, rather than my heart going there when it leaves the Great Smoky Mountains, it tends to travel to the Colorado Plateau where it might land in any number of places, one of which would surely be Zion Canyon, whose cottonwood-, sawtooth maple-, and Gamble oak-filled floor, set among walls of amazing and beautiful Navajo, Keyenta, and Wingate Sandstone, never ceases to bring joy to my eye. Looking down the canyon from near Weeping Rock, the view of the Court of the Patriarchs, framed through hardwoods, seems like a stunning expression of what this amazing national park is all about. A focal length of 30mm, the upper end of wide-angle, gave me the angle-of-view I wanted. An aperture of f/22 provided depth-of-field, and a shutter speed of 0.6 seconds at ISO 100 gave me an overall medium exposure. My heart and I are already looking forward to September.
