The Watchman Sunset at Zion National Park

Post on November 7, 2012 Landscape


We reached Zion National Park couple hours before sunset and made our first stop to the most photographed Virgin river bridge leading up to The Watchman. It wasn’t the peak season for Fall color but the iconic classic view on the bridge quickly occupied with photographers before sun down. Yes, we got some clouds that evening and the regular were well alerted. They came early, claimed the best spot and anticipated a blow up sunset.

Nah, that didn’t happen but it was a nice sunset nevertheless. There, you get to meet many photographers and most of them wouldn’t mind sharing a few spots and stories of their best, the cliché bridge shot of the Watchman.
