Bryce Canyon II
Photograph - Digital Photography
Bryce Canyon II by Jeff Burton captures the morning sun peaking over the horizon and filling Bryce canyon. The morning light illuminates the hoodoos accentuating the many orange and white colors and emphasizing the wonderful texture of the formations.
The Bryce Canyon area was settled by Mormon pioneers in the 1850s and was named after Ebenezer Bryce, who homesteaded in the area in 1874. Despite its name Bryce Canyon, which is located in southwestern Utah, is not a canyon but a collection of giant natural amphitheaters along the eastern side of the Paunsaugunt Plateau. Bryce contains distinctive geological structures called hoodoos, formed by frost weathering and stream erosion of the river and lake bed sedimentary rocks. The red, orange, and white colors of the rocks provide spectacular views.
