Green River Overlook, Canyonlands, Utah

Daily Photo:

The vast Canyonland National Park stretched out forever into the horizon. As I sat there in the calm morning stillness, I studied how different it was the evening before when the wind was whipping over these canyons so violently it was almost impossible to stand, and the cold was ripping right through you. The green Colorado River in the distance was barely visible because of dust. Now clear for a 100 miles I just sat there for the longest time not wanting to leave. No one around, a great place to feel total peace. A self-portrait taken with 3 exposures, then processed in Photomatix, Topaz Adjust and PS cs5 to get the HDR effect.

  1. Great photo! I’m going to canyonlands for the first time this summer and this photo just made me even more excited. I love the idea of watching the sunrise and the sunset overlooking something this beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

    • Make you sure you hike to Delicate Arch in Arches National Park. Beautiful and popular so go early to get parking spot. See my gallery for a photo of it. Thanks for sharing
