The story behind the image
On our 2003 trip through California, Arizona, Utah and Nevada we saw several National Parks. They were all impressive, but Bryce Canyon National was one that sticks to my mind even today, nearly two decades after having visited the park.
It has so many beautiful spots for photographers that you could easily spend several days here. The photo above, for example, shows the play of lights and shadows in the late afternoon. I love the harsh contrasts of shadows and soft sand tones. The huge trees on the left indicate the real size of the rocks. Awesome.
