Bryce Canyon National Park, Sunrise, Bryce Point Overlook

Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah is a fairyland of red, orange, and white hoodoos and spires. The rim elevation varies from 8,000 to 9,000 feet.

Rooms in the park can be difficult to obtain, so book early.

The images in this article were taken in Late July and Early August. As is typically the case at Bryce Canyon, sunrise generally presents more opportunities than sunset.

Feature Image Details

I used a Canon 24-105MM F4 L Lens at 35mm and blended 3 vertical images together with lots of overlap. There was nothing more to see on either the left or the right so I ended up with a near square image out this this pano sequence. I shot as ISO 200, F13 for 1/80th of a second.

Light in the morning is very fleeting. At this location, you don’t have to hike very far.

Further down the path there is an overlook with a near 360 degree panorama that has opportunities at sunrise and sunset. Here is another sunrise panorama.

Unless there are strong clouds with lots of color I generally do not shoot towards the sun. I would rather get the light hitting an object as I did in this set of images.
