After spending a couple of days at Zion, we headed to Bryce Canyon. While the landscape at Zion was spectacular, Bryce gave the impression that we had left the planet entirely. The "hoodoos" were unlike anything we had seen before, and the size and scope of these formations were hard to fathom. In addition, the altitude here was several thousand feet higher than Zion, the weather was significantly cooler, and several areas still had snow on the ground.
And while I already knew that photography was all about light and lighting, Bryce Canyon really drives that point home in a very direct fashion. The hours around sunrise and sunset generally provide the best light for most landscape photography, but this is especially true at Bryce.
