High in the Morning


Maynard Dixon, 1933



Maynard Dixon, 1933

This striking close-up of the Great White Throne, a landmark at the entrance to Zion National Park, is the antithesis of Dixon’s more typical images of vast western horizons. The massive rock formations fill the picture plane with little sky showing above. There is also minimal foreground, diminishing the sense of distance between the viewer and the landscape, made all the more dramatic by the brilliant light and contrasting shadows of a late afternoon sun.
