Altar of Sacrifice – Mt Kinesava

Location Origin Story

This is a unique aerial view of Zion National Park showing numerous iconic landmarks across the distance. Spread out across the Markagunt Plateau and Kolob Terrace, Zion is located at the intersection of three geographic provinces: Colorado Plateau, the Great Basin, and the Mojave Desert. These otherworldly looking formations are the jagged edge of a huge area that has been twisted, uplifted, tilted, and eroded over time, forming a geological feature known as the Grand Staircase; a series of colorful cliffs stretching up out of the Grand Canyon all the way up to Bryce Canyon and over to Zion National Park.

The First Nations Southern Paiute tribes who lived here called this place either “Mukuntuweap” which means “straight canyon”, or “ I-oo-gune” for “like an arrow quiver“.

About This Photograph

This brilliantly lit image was filmed during the month of November while Zedekiah was exploring the Zion National Park area. He used the glow of the richly colored strata off of the nimbostratus clouds to light the scene and bring out the vibrant colors of the different layers of rock.

Image Rarity

The image was taken from a moving aircraft, as Zedekiah piloted the aircraft while simultaneously operating the camera.

Zedekiah used the natural lighting and the clouds as a backdrop, where timing and being in the place-in-space for this scene to reveal itself was crucial to this image composition.

Lastly, it is impossible to simply walk up a trail and take the same photograph again. This image was very difficult to create, and is truly one-of-a-kind, therefore making it extremely rare.
