Discover the top photo spots in Zion National Park
Laurent Martres presents 36 awesome photo locations and over 125 inspirational images in and around Zion National Park, one of southern Utah’s most dramatic natural wonders. Vermillion cliffs, verdant valleys, awe-inspiring rock formations and lush vegetation make this a must-visit park for any photographer.
From late March to early November as well as weekends in November, a mandatory shuttle service is in place to reduce congestion and pollution in the Valley. The service runs smoothly and delivers you and your camera gear to the location of your choice in the Canyon. Shuttle schedules vary depending on the season and may be subject to change. Shuttles run from 6 am (from the Visitor Center) to 9:15 pm (from the Temple of Sinawava) with an average wait of 15 minutes or less during peak hours. The shuttle trip to the end of the canyon takes 45 minutes.
Note that the Visitor Center parking lot usually fills up by mid-morning. If that’s the case, you must park in Springdale and take a first shuttle from town to the Visitor Center.
If you are visiting by car outside the mandatory shuttle season, you can travel with the sun as it crosses the valley and harvest a great crop of photos.
If you travel by RV, note that there are some parking restrictions in the Valley. Also and you will need an escort to go through the tunnel on the Zion-Mt. Carmel Highway (aka Scenic Byway 9) leading to and from the Plateau.
