It is just before sunset, and we are in Zion National Park, Utah. Not far away, crowds of people are still milling about, but one doesn’t have to walk far to leave them behind, even on the popular Emerald Pools trail.

Last Light in Zion is an original oil painting by Steve Henderson of Steve Henderson Fine Art. 30 x 30 on canvas, framed, it is showing until May 19 in the National Paint the Parks Exhibition at Wildlife Experience in Parker, CO. After that, it will be featured at the Coutts Art Museum in El Dorado, KS.

Or, are we on the opposite coast of North America, and she greets the rising sun of a new day?
Ocean Breeze is available in the following ways:
