Photo Of The Day – Silhouette Against The Cliffs Of Zion

Silhouette against the wall

Title: Silhouette Against The Cliffs Of Zion

Location: Zion National Park, Utah, USA, North America

Description: It would take me weeks to get enough of Zion’s towering walls. The deep colors that change as the sun moves across the sky, the way life makes a stand wherever it can, the shimmering pools found in hidden nooks.
