Before visiting Zion National Park know the times when the Park Shuttle is in operation.  When it is, access to Zion Canyon for Sunrise or Sunset will be limited.

Even in Spring, Summer and Fall when the shuttle is in operation, you can still get nice morning or late afternoon photos at locations in Zion Canyon.

There is a small patio behind the Zion Human History Museum that is popular for Sunrise Photography.  You can photograph Towers of the Virgin here.
