Day 247: May 30, 2005 - Bands of Light

by Karen Williams
I spotted this lizard fighting with another lizard and my presence distrupted their territorial confrontation. The two lizards quickly separated and ran in opposite directions. I'm always impressed how lizards can disappear into tiny little cracks in the rock. This lizard wedged himself where he supposed he was out of sight. I braced my macro lens up against the rock to get a picture of him in his hideaway. I like the effect of the two diagonal bands of light across the top and bottom that is created in this photograph. This effect on the rock is caused by the reflecting sun, combined with the higher ISO and lower depth of field required to reveal the shadows within.

365 Days in Zion is a photo experience by Karen and Christian Williams. Together, we spent an entire year in Zion National Park amidst snow, rain, flash floods, brush fires, and the beautiful sunny blue skies that typify Southern Utah in the United States of America.
