A winter sunrise at Deadhorse Point, about 2,000 feet above the Colorado River, with the sun glowing on the distant background which is the cliffs of Canyonlands National Park.
Legend tells of horse being corralled atop the cliffs at this prominent point, high above the valley floor. As time went by some horses were left corralled without water, resulting in their deaths; thereby the site inherited the name Deadhorse Point.

Of course there is so much to learn and to do better, but this picture is my personal number one, so much more than just the capture of the instant. It brought and still brings this mystic and transcendental aura into my soul and thoughts. This incredible kind of peace and monumental natural beauty – existing for thousand or millions of years – to big for one human life or generations of people. To seek for the essence of this place is to seek for our true inner nature – truely a soulside journey.

The day leading up to this shot was… busy. 12am, hike. 4am, hike. 9am, waist deep in a creek. Then spent the evening snow-shoeing into a couple lakes in the Three Sisters Wilderness. After three hours of sleep, I had the privilege of waking up to this light show.
This is easily the best light I’ve seen at this location, the Painted Hills in Oregon. It’s such an awesome place. Couldn’t have been better timing for a light show with beautiful seasonal wildflowers on the rim.
This is a focus stack and exposure blend.
