Hi Everyone,

A little 'out of turn' for this but I processed this at the weekend and just had to share it with you.

Bryce Canyon at Sunrise Point (clearly..) - this just shone out like a beacon in the early morning sun. Hope you like it:



Thanks for looking and comments, as always, very welcome.

Best regards, Neil.

Bryce always is beautiful, so thank you for sharing. One comment though, I find the composition a bit restless for my taste. Too many rocks that are only partly in the picture. The point itself is nice though

Neil, amazing photo, I've never seen anything like it. It looks like its in the middle of a blast furnace, heating from the inside, great outdoor colors. Again, amazing, seeing something like that makes an adventure worth while many fold
Addy does point out one aspect of the photo, though. I do like it a lot

It really looks like the rock is lit from within.
The none or less lit environment only adds to this

Remarkable image, Neil. As said above by @Coast, it does look like something aglow in the middle of a furnace.
Beautifully composed and taken.
From your other thread, it looks like we've got a lot more to look forward to.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

This was a real surprise and just seemed to develop and develop before our eyes that morning; I have others in the series that show less colour and intensity but only this one moment where the intensity and vibrance of the rocks look like this. Oh; and a few steps to either side would have meant we probably wouldn't have seen it in quite such a striking way as this.

I also take the comments about the relative 'busyness' of the scene around the pillar - again, I will share later on some that are a lot cleaner in this respect but, in my defence, I like the feeling of context and surroundings that this one shot gives the scene.

And yes; well worth the early morning call!

Thanks again and best regards, Neil.

I have never been to Bryce but hope to some day. I'm again reminded why I need to. I love the look of how the one pillar glows almost incandescently while not being blown out.

Lovely image!

Now we know why it is called sunrise point. Wonderful light Neil. I understand why you gave this one a place of its own. This is a well balanced image. The diagonal ridge guides the eye through the image and creates two areas, with the glowing reds in the bottom right as counterweight to the dark area top left. Stellar stuff.
