How to Photograph and find Utah's National Parks best locations

There are many beautiful landscape and nature photography locations in Utah's National Park and the surrounding areas of this beautiful state. In that, the area surrounding Utah's National Parks is an arid desert much of the best photography is done in the hour before and after sunrise and sunset. During the proper seasons, astrophotography can be a high point in a photography trip to Utah.

Arches National Park is a landscape photographer's dream with a landscape of contrasting colors, Shapes, landforms, and textures unlike any other in the world. The park has over 2,000 natural stone arches and hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive rock fins, and giant balanced rocks. This red-rock wonderland will amaze you with its formations, refresh you with its trails, and inspire you with its sunsets, sunrises and night skies.

Bryce Canyon National Park abounds with colorful Hoodoos (irregular columns of rock) that exist on every continent, but here is the largest concentration found anywhere on Earth. Situated along a high plateau at the top of the Grand Staircase, the park's high elevations include numerous life communities, fantastic dark skies, and geological wonders that defy description will offer many wondrous photography opportunities.

Canyonlands National Park is the largest national park in Utah, and its diversity will challenge your compositional skills. The easiest way to see the park is with a visit to the Island in the Sky district, only 32 miles (51.5 km) from Moab. The Island in the Sky offers many pullouts with spectacular views along the paved scenic drive. Hiking trails and four-wheel-drive roads access backcountry areas for day or overnight trips.

The Island in the Sky sits atop a massive 1500 foot mesa, quite literally an Island in the Sky. Twenty miles (32.2 km) of paved roads lead to many of the most spectacular views in Canyon Country. From these lofty viewpoints, visitors can often see over 100 miles (161 km) in any given direction, resulting in panoramic views that encompass thousands of square miles of canyon country. The more famous photo locations are Mesa Arch and the Green River overlook.

Capitol Reef National Park lies in Utah’s south-central desert, an oasis of colorful sandstone cliffs, impressive domes, and soaring monoliths. The park's name came from the great white rock formations which resemble the U.S. Capitol building, and from the sheer cliffs that presented a barrier to early travelers. Early inhabitants referred to the area as the “land of the sleeping rainbow” because of its beautiful contrasts: multi-colored sandstone surrounded by verdant riverbanks and arid desert vegetation, all nestled beneath deep blue skies.

Zion National Park is a land of massive sandstone cliffs of cream, pink, and red rocks, towering cliffs and slot canyons all with a river runs through it scenes and unique photography only limited by your imagination.
