2021—A Sense of Scale

It’s not always possible to get a true sense of the size of a landscape from a photograph unless it includes something everyone recognizes. In this image, a couple of hikers paused briefly at an overlook just beneath Sunset Point where I was standing. They stayed long enough for me to capture them in the frame, thus giving their surroundings and the Hoodoos they were gazing at an indication of the scale and grandeur of Bryce Canyon and its unique landscape of red rock Hoodoos. We ended our week in Bryce where we began, at Sunset Point. Our first visit was at sunrise, and this visit was at sunset where a few wispy clouds gave definition to the sky.
