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.
The moment lasts just that — a moment — a moment of silence, a moment of being alone, a moment of the sun sending one last ray through a space in the rocks, lighting the trees and casting shadows into the shadows.
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.
