That Golden Glow

I’ve spent many an hour waiting for the sun to either rise or set.  Looking toward it or away from it, the light skimming almost tangent to the earth can be amazing.

I caught these morning photos a couple of weekends ago when I was down in Arches National Park.  When camping, I’m usually up at the first sign of daylight, before the sun has a chance to break over the horizon.  I had the campfire burning, second cup of coffee in hand, when I took these pictures right from the Devil’s Garden Campground.

Oh wow.
Granted, the setting or rising sun on sandstone is a glorious thing to see, but these may truly be your best photos yet.
Absolutely gorgeous. Really.

Pretty cool, Max.

Good thing the Devil didn't catch you playing in his garden!

A golden glow that I would love to see. An ideal place to be in early morning.

Gorgeous shots! I like the first one the most. I can almost taste the coffee, smell the smoke and feel the satisfaction.
