Bryce Canyon: Sunset Panorama
This is Bryce Canyon, offering one of the greatest displays of hoodoos in the US—if not on the planet. While my husband and I are intrepid hoodoo trekkers (see here, for example), I can never seem to get enough of these unique geological formations. And to see them in unusual colors like pink and orange? Well, that’s just a bonus.
This is a panorama stitched together from a series of photos, all taken just before the first photo in yesterday’s post. As I described in that post, we had returned to the park with the hopes of viewing the hoodoos awash in the brilliant light of sunset. Unfortunately, clouds dimmed our goal a little, but we were rewarded with a brief break immediately before the sun sank below the horizon. This panorama captures the moment immediately after the sun broke free, illumination just the edges of the higher formations in the park.
This photo, quite frankly, fails to truly capture the captivating presence of these hoodoos. You really have to view them in person to appreciate them. But for now, the photo will have to make do!
