Utah side tour: Bryce Canyon National Park

Photo tour: Bryce Canyon after sunset

by Robin on July 28, 2009

This summer we had the pleasure of visiting Utah and Arizona with plenty of photographic opportunities. First stop on our tour was Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah.

Photo tour: The red rocks in Dixie National Forest
Driving in from the west, you will have to go through Dixie National Forest. This forest with its red rock formations is a nice warm-up for the landscape you are going to see in Bryce Canyon. By the way, camping in Dixie is great. Quiet and peaceful and very close to the park for your early morning and late night visits.

The views towards the east are magnificent with Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in the background.

Photo tour: Sun setting over Bryce Canyon
In the evening, the visitors are flocking to the park to see the sunset and this is the best time for photographers.

Bryce Canyon sunset
Due to the sheer cliffs you don’t have to worry about anyone running in front of your camera.

Photo tour: Bryce Canyon amphitheater
When visiting Bryce Canyon, make sure you stay overnight so that you can visit the park early in the morning. With the sun rising from the east, the light in the morning is completely different from late in the afternoon or evening.
