Photographer's Note

Hi my Trek friends,

Just got back from a 4 weeks trip in the south west of the united states. It was my first time in that part of the world and I just love it. I had a chance to visit many of the great national parks.

This is an image of Bryce Canyon taken just a few minutes after the sunrise. "The Canyon, famous for its worldly unique geology, consists of a series of horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters carved from the eastern edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau in southern Utah like you can in this image. Named after the Mormon Pioneer Ebenezer Bryce, Bryce Canyon became a national park in 1924. It is the uniqueness of the rocks that caused Bryce Canyon to be designated as a national park. These famous spires called "hoodoos" are formed when ice and rainwater wear away the weak limestone that makes up the Claron Formation." Text from the above website.

I was really taken when I first saw these formations the evening before the photo. I had never seen anything like this. So I decided to come back the morning after for the sunrise. This was a good idea because with the golden light of the morning, this wonderfull place took a totally different look and became even more stunning.

Have a great day.

Paul
