..’twas a bit dark so i just dragged the shutter for this one..

Bryce Canyon National Park is a national park located in southwestern Utah in the United States. The major feature of the park is Bryce Canyon which, despite its name, is not actually a canyon but a giant natural amphitheater created by erosion along the eastern side of the Paunsaugunt Plateau. Bryce is distinctive due to geological structures called hoodoos, formed by wind, water and ice erosion of the river and lake bed sedimentary rocks. The red, orange and white colors of the rocks provide spectacular vistas for park visitors. Bryce is at a much higher elevation than nearby Zion National Park. The rim at Bryce varies from 8,000 to 9,000 feet (2,400 to 2,700 m).

Dragging your shutter clearly did the trick, Rian, because this is gorgeous. I remember seeing Bryce Canyon over 38 years ago when I was pregnant with my firstborn. I remember being nauseated the entire time and so missed most of the beauty of this place. I’m remembering it through your eyes, so thank you.

this so delightful! the colors and the framing. and then also to read you mentioning hoodoos. i remember when i posted a hoodoo photograph and you thought i’d made up the word. so nice to see you enjoying and shooting your own hoodoos my friend.
