Sunset, Grandview Point, 1994. Canyonlands National Park, Utah

Sunset, Grandview Point, 1994. Canyonlands National Park, Utah


A thunderstorm was beginning to clear as I walked along the rim from the parking area at Canyonlands National Park's Grandview Point. Some scattered sunlight was already hitting the distant mesas and I knew that timing would be a prime concern since it was very close to sunset. Suddenly the sunlight washed the rapidly moving storm clouds with rich golden light and the entire scene before me was magically transformed into a breathtaking display of vibrant color. I made a mad dash back to the car, several hundred yards away, grabbed my 4x5 view camera in it's case, and my Bogen tripod, and literally ran back to this spot as fast as I could, leaping over boulders and bushes in a race against time. I quickly made a good sharp exposure on 4x5 Kodak Ektachrome film before the light changed completely and the colors took on a muted appearance. I used a Schneider 121mm Super Angulon lens.
