Visiting and Photographing Bryce Canyon
I remember from when I was just a boy on a family trip going to Bryce Canyon National Park and my mother taking a photograph there of the hoodoo amphitheater that wound up hanging in our house for many years. She considered it one of the best photographs she had ever taken. I can understand why.
There are a variety of canyons across the United States. In many ways, they are similar. Bryce is different from all of them, which is probably why it has such an impact on those that visit. If you have the opportunity to be anywhere in Utah, it is worth the side trip.
I consider Bryce Canyon a part of what many refer to as Red Rock Country. This is an area comprising of a large section of Northern Arizona, with places like Sedona and Monument Valley and a big chunk of Southern Utah, with places like Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park and Zion National Park.
There is something special about the way the early sun hits the hoodoos and light them up. There is a short time that they just seem to glow, as if they are lighted from within. It’s not really possible to capture in a photo. It’s just one of those things where you have to be there.
The Park consists mostly of one main road running north to south. If you are a hiker, the Park has many miles of trails that take you to rock formations that you cannot see from the various overlooks. I will freely admit to not having done any of these, due partially to their length and difficulty.
After entering the Park, the first area you come to is Fairyland. The hoodoos here are more subtle than some of the others, but there are also some dense pine trees that add some nice color contrast. I like shooting this area in the early morning.
Next along the road are Sunrise Point and Sunset Point. For me, they both are great at sunrise, as the sun rises from the east, filling both of the amphitheaters with light. However, it is possible to capture good light on the eastern hoodoos at sunset from Sunset Point. The good light doesn’t last long, and you have to be ready to move fast.
Thor’s Hammer at Sunset Point is a must for any photographer. It’s fun to get the sun bursting over the edge of the hoodoo at sunrise. You just have to check out where its going to rise from on your preferred photography app.
From Inspiration Point, you begin to see the main amphitheater. Like most of the overlooks, being there at sunrise is the key.
Bryce Point is the real deal here. The hoodoo amphitheater is in full display here. It you only make it to one overlook for sunrise, this is the one to be at. Get there before sunrise to get in position as you don’t want to be late. The warm, orange sunrise light only lasts for a few minutes.
There are more overlooks as you continue down the main road. Swamp Canyon, Farview Point and Natural Bridge are all worth stopping at. I made it a point to get to Natural Bridge right at sunrise one morning, and the inside of the bridge formation lit up nicely from the early sun.
There are a few more overlooks such as Aqua Canyon, Ponderosa Canyon, Black Birch Canyon, and at the very end of the road, Rainbow Point and Yovimpa Point.
Just outside the main entrance and to the east is the Mossy Cave Trail to a waterfall. I’ve simply run out of time to get there on my previous trips, but I have it on the top of my list for next time.
Bryce Canyon is at 8,000 feet of elevation and receives quite a bit of snowfall. My images of snow there are from early November. It can be severely cold in the winter, so be prepared. I think there is something special about the contrast of the snow on the red rock hoodoos.
Bryce Canyon National Park will not disappoint. I hope my images in this gallery convey the magic and beauty of this park.
Fun Facts About Bryce Canyon National Park
Bryce Canyon is one of many stunning Utah Landscapes. Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah is one of 63 National Parks in the United States and was designated as such in 1928. The Park is located in southwest Utah not too far from the very popular Zion National Park.
It’s a smaller Park than most with only 55 square miles, but it is comprised of large natural amphitheaters filled with hundreds of stunning red rock hoodoos. Although somewhat remote, Bryce still receives over 2 million visitors each year. For more red rock, see also our Fine Art Photography of Red Rock Country and Arches and Canyonlands National Park.
