Patriarchs at Zion


The Court of the Patriarchs at Zion National Park is one of the most recognized landmarks in the Park. Three of the monoliths were named by Methodist Minister Frederick Fischer in 1916 as Abraham Peak, Isaac Peak, and Jacob Peak. The fourth peak bears the Latter Day Saints' appelation of Mount Moroni.


There was just a trace of snow hiding on north face of Abraham Peak on the late December morning when I captured the Court glowing as the sun finally reached down into Zion Canyon.



New Work

I've loaded my favorite recent images into the "Recent Work" section, plus some additional new images in the "Wide View" and "Black + White" sections of the site - take a look!
