Monument Canyon Glow

Uploaded: August 22, 2010


For just a few minutes the sunset at Monument Canyon (inside Colorado National Monument) went crazy orange and yellow, a joy to be there.

Canon 17-40mm L, single exposure with a Singh-Ray 3-stop ND Grad filter.

Thanks everyone, it WAS a sight to see... 1000-foot drops straight down just a few feet away. I wish I had better captured the hugeness of the place, not always easy to do!

Very very nice. I hope this one gets you a well deserved award. #8871135

Thanks Ruth... it IS a much-needed repost from the 2008 version (yikes, maybe I should have stated that!). #8871163
