After leaving Scottsdale Arizona to see my mom, I drove to Bryce Canyon in Utah for some astrophotography. I arrived here in the dark so it was a little hard to find the composition I was looking for to show a little bit of the Canyon and hoodoos. Here is scenic portrait view into the colorful celestial night sky with the silhouette of a cool forest tree looking into a stellar starfield galaxy and universe.
Forests dominate the upper altitudes of the Bryce Canon Paunsaugunt Plateau containing white fir-spruce-aspen forest. Bristlecone pine lives in the high limestone knolls. Ponderosa pine and manzanita dominate the middle altitudes. Forest health and return to historic density are managed with prescribed fire. Pinyon pine-juniper forest dominates the lower elevation areas of the park. Gambel oak, cactus and yucca punctuate the lower elevation juniper forest.
Hope you like.
