December 2004 Photo Of The Month: A Winter Checkerboard

Going back to some very old images, this is my December 2004 Photo Of The Month.  A Winter Checkerboard was made with what would be considered a very antiquated digital camera.  This image was taken with my good friend James Arriola on New Year’s Eve on a quick trip to Zion National Park.

This was an enjoyable trip because it is rare to see Zion National Park during a snowstorm that is still open to vehicular traffic.  This may not be a true portfolio piece, but it was one step along the journey in developing my love for photography.

My good friend James Arriola and I traveled to visit near the New Year.  The “off season” in Zion National Park is great because the entire canyon is open to vehicles.  That being said, I have always had a special place in my hard for East Zion.  The side canyons are great, and I have always loved Checkerboard Mesa, not far from the East Gate.

I have only been in Zion National Park with snow a couple times, but each time I wanted to get over to Checkerboard.  This is the first image I have made with it.

This is an old image.  I backdated this post specifically so I could show my personal progress as a photographer over the years.

As always, thank you for reading, and I hope you enjoy the image.
