Bryce Point, Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah. 27-1-2002.
Bryce Canyon National Park is a geological marvel. The combination of spires, hoodoos, grottos, arches and walls are unequaled on earth. All this maze-like architecture has been built by the deposition, uplift, and erosion processes that started 12 million years ago. The finishing touch, however, was endowed by the cutting of the limestone by Paria River and its tributaries.
This is an early morning shot from the Bryce Point overlook. The telephoto lens compressed the image into a zig-zagging pattern of hoodoo formations. You can see the morning fog on top.
