Angels Landing in Zion National Park

We did the 5 mile hike in the morning and ended up on top of Angels Landing around noon, right when the sun was way too harsh to shoot. So we decided to climb down and have lunch then make the hike up again in the afternoon. The second time ascending this massive cliff was extremely tough and one of the most strenuous things I've had to do. The difficult hike made it all the more worth it when we made it to the peak right as the sun was setting over the valley giving us the most beautiful light to shoot in. 

We shot as much as we could before the sun faded away then rushed down to make the last bus picking up the few hikers left on the trail. It was an incredible time and one of the most exhilarating moments of my life; completely recommend doing this hike even though it was very narrow at some points and you're literally hanging on to a chain the last leg of the hike as you climb to the peak. 

Peak of Lost Mine Trail [ SHOT ON iPhone 7 Plus ]

What an incredible journey we had making the hike up Lost Mine Trail. I was extremely surprised by how well the iPhone 7 plus could capture the colors in the sunrise. I captured this shot with the second camera on the iPhone 7 plus. 

It really is amazing that we have such power devices that fit in our pockets. As a photographer who just wants to capture beautiful moments and doesn't care too much about the gear thats used to capture it. It's very relieving having a phone like the iPhone 7 Plus to pull out and capture extremely detailed images so quickly. I find myself using the new iPhone on so many shoots just because its so fast. 

I am very much looking forward to the next shots that I capture using the iPhone 7 plus.
