Canyonlands National Park: Green River Overlook, Clearing Storm at Sunset

Feature Image Details

This is a panorama composite of 12 vertical images taken with a Canon 16-35MM F4 L Lens.

In my previous post I showed a “Green River Overlook”. It is the same “Green River” but a completely different overlook.

This one you can drive right up to with no problem, get out of your car, walk a short distance and take pictures.

But you do need dramatic light, clouds, clear air, and good technique.

I merged 12 different images into that panorama. The right hand side of the image was the most difficult part. Contrast between the sun and the sky was intense.  6 of the 12 images contained various exposures of the sun.

Here is my panorama split into three equal parts.

Other Canyonlands Images

Mesa Arch, Murphy Point, the Grand View Overlook, and the Green River Overlook are all easy hikes.

False Kiva is a difficult hike and now closed by the park because of vandalism.

Shafer Road is an adventure, not a hike.


If you are at the Canyonlands Island in the Sky district, then Arches National Park is nearby.

For most, it’s probably the reverse, visiting Arches then going to Canyonlands as a side trip.
