Sunlight from a rising sun appears on the Towers Of The Virgin at Zion National Park this week.
An early morning thunderstorm woke me up this morning at 6am so I went out to shoot a glorious sunrise at Zion National Park, Utah. The sun’s rays were filtered by passing clouds and produced some dramatic light.
Normally we photograph the setting sun, not rising sun on the Pacific Ocean. But, I woke up around 5am and decided to check it out. In the winter, the sun actually rises more from the Southeast, not East. So I was able to get a vantage point where the color from the sun would be in the frame along with the crashing waves on the beach. With just enough clouds to give the images some depth, it was a glorious sunrise even though I got a soaking from the waves.
