Shutterbug Photo of the Day: “Zion Narrows” by Laura Zirino

Our Shutterbug Photo of the Day is a beautiful shot of light, shadow and flowing water in rugged canyon by Laura Zirino.

“The Narrows in Zion National Park as morning light hits the back wall of Wall Street, so named because this is where the canyon passage becomes very narrow. My first instinct in this place is to shoot vertical to capture the height of this unique place, but later I looked at this one and cropped out the top and bottom, making it a horizontal shot. I like this version much better,” writes Zirino.

The image was captured with a Canon 5D Mark III, a 16-35mm lens (using a tripod), 34mm, f/18, 3.2 sec at ISO 100.
