Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah

Bryce Canyon is an absolutely unique national park. Hoodoos, stone pillars, can be seen on every continent, but this is actually the typical hoodoos terrain. Even pictures fail to do this area justice. When you see perhaps you'll make a much better name. In the mean time Bryce must suffice.

The photographer's dream is a beautiful early morning at Bryce Canyon National Park.

My wife and I arrived the prior afternoon and had hoped to explore the park for a sunrise shoot location; however, there were strong thunderstorms in the area and instead we found a place for to enjoy a beer. It was still pretty dark and cold when we set up the tripod in this location.

Bryce Canyon is located in the state of Utah and is relatively close to Zion National Park. It was designated a national park during 1928. At 56 square miles, is smaller than many other parks, but is a gem with its countless colorful hoodoos. Its elevation is somewhat high ranging from 6,600 ft to 9,100 feet which causes it to have a cool climate. It was a refreshing mid-50s F the August morning we took this photo.

I always fret with just how much to brighten a photo like this.
