This gallery is our collection of fine art photographs of Capitol Reef Photographs. Capitol Reef National Park is located in south-central Utah in the heart of red rock country. The following is our collection of photographs from this hidden gem.
The entire park is breathtaking. Capitol Reef National Park protects colorful canyons, ridges and buttes that are part of a geologic wrinkle on earth. Erosion of the tilted rock layers continues today forming colorful cliffs, massive domes, soaring spires, twisting canyons and graceful arches. Capitol Reef National Park gets it’s name for a line of white domes of Navajo Sandstone, each of which looks somewhat like the United States Capitol building. The “reef” was a term used by early settlers for parallel, impassable ridges that reminded them of reef barriers at sea.
