A Touch of Fall at Bryce
Bryce Canyon in Fall. View from Sunrise POint, Navajo Trail.
This photograph was taken during the "Utah's Golden Circle" workshop/field seminar with Rick Knepp during October 2010. We reached Bryce Canyon on Oct 17, stayed the night at Fosters Motel and headed out to shoot the sunrise at Bryce. An overcast morning greeted us. Once we reached the Sunset Point, we saw the amphitheater covered in fog. Luckily, the clouds had broken up by now. As the sun rose the fog gradually dissipated.
After shooting at the viewpoints, I started making my way down the Navajo Trail. The trail was very very muddy, with my shoes adding on a pound or too as I walked, unwillingly collecting the red clay mud, as I walked along the trail. About 200 steps into the trail is when I made this photograph. The Aspen trees in yellow against the red rocks of Bryce was just too much to not stop for.
