The story behind the image
Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah is an overwhelming experience, for hikers and for photographers.
I captured these two hikers (which you can spot in the left third of the image) as they walked along the Queens Garden in the park in the late morning. I liked the idea that the hikers are really tiny, adding a natural scale to the image. Only with the hikers you can understand the massive size of the rock formations.
Of course, I love the restricted color set, all the red and orange shades that contrast so well with the green of the trees. I adore this shot.
