Due to the direction of the canyon walls, Bryce Canyon generally presents more opportunities at sunrise than sunset.
The Bryce Point Overlook provides a genuine Sunset opportunity. These images were taken at sunset on the same day.
Feature Image Details
I used a Canon 16-35MM F4 L Lens at 16mm ISO 400. This is a cropped shot. I got to this spot late. So late in fact that had I not been late I would not have been in this spot.
The sun was about to set and those clouds were moving at a blazing speed.
There were two other photographers at this location and it holds precisely three people. They conveniently left the best spot for me, right in front of the tree. I grabbed about a half dozen frame with the intention of making a panorama but the clouds were moving so fast the merge program could not handle it. I went for this crop instead.
That image was taken after sunset.
Everyone else gave up. When there are nice clouds, resist the temptation. I had this spot, to myself. It was just a short walk from the first location.
This is a panorama blend of 6 images, cropped into a pleasing frame.
