I photographed this scene on my fall 2014 visit to Zion National Park. This is the most beautiful waterfall in the park, and it is a composition I have struggled with in the past.
I try to shoot horizontal compositions as much as possible because of the calm feeling they have. In years past, I was unable to find a horizontal composition of this scene, but this year I had a trick up my sleeve.
I used a technique called rear tilt that allows me to minimize the top of the scene, and maximize the size of the foreground. That allowed me to show the top of the pine tree, and emphasize the waterfall in the foreground. This is one of the many reasons why I enjoy working with a traditional view camera.
