The North Fork of the Virgin River in southwestern Utah was running really low this fall when I was there. I have been up the Narrows a couple of times over the years, but I have never seen it that low. It did create some new opportunities for photography though, since there were more rock structures exposed. I probably wouldn’t have even been able to wade into the river where I took this shot with more of a flow. The red rock wall glowing around the corner sprinkled with golden cottonwood trees drew me to working the area to get the best composition. I liked how the flowing water in this image led you around the rock in the foreground and through the scene.
