Taken from down in the bowels of the hoodoos of Bryce Canyon NP.

Amazing John!! It makes me feel the history on the earth and the fact that the moon has seen it all.

Gotta love the light there!!! Sublime colors and interesting formations.

@Laurie: The light at the beginning of the day in Bryce is magical. The place to be is down inside. Unfortunately most people stay up on the rim.

on est transporté dans un autre monde, peut-être Mars ..face à la lune !! non, c'est superbe cette couleur vermillon sur le ciel bleu, la lune ajoute une touche d'extravagance, on est en plein surréalisme.
