Glen Canyon is that canyon that pretty much disappeared once construction started on the Glen Canyon Dam in 1956. It was finished in 1966. But the Colorado River was backed up into the canyon which later formed Lake Powell and the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. There still is a canyon but not nearly as deep as it was. The two images here were shot within 5 minutes of each other. More images from the area to follow.
That drought that caused brush fires in California that I highlighted earlier this week, is now a recent memory. California gets rain in the winter and the hills get green, but this winter , they are green green. These hills are east of Paso Robles, on the way to the San Joaquin Valley.

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.
