Virgin River Hanging Gardens, Narrows-Zion National Park

Hanging Gardens, Virgin River, Zion National Park  Here is another image I took along the Virgin River during my short hike up the narrows. This hanging garden was about 1/4 mile up the canyon past where the paved trail ends. The mix of colors on the canyon wall with the river flowing along beneath made for a nice scene. I'm also submitting this photo as part of the #FlowingWaterFriday theme on Google+. I think the slower shutter speed I used really accentuates the flowing nature of the water in the river.

I really wish I had the time (and the equipment) to go further up the canyon but in my short time wading in the river I found a lot of good photo opportunities. The narrows is a unique area and well worth exploring when you're in Zion National Park.
