Occasionally, everything comes together to create the perfect moment. That was my experience in making this panorama, and I hope it has the same effect for you:
In early summer the Milky Way is low in the eastern sky at nightfall, and is seen here from a point along the Fairyland Loop Trail in Bryce Canyon National Park. The otherwise dark (at night) rock formations are illuminated here courtesy of some lights I brought along.
We would be honored if those of you who use Facebook would take a moment to “like” our Facebook page. As always, we appreciate everyone for subscribing, and sharing these panoramas!
All The Best,
Bryce Canyon contains a unique combination of rock formations intermixed with pine trees, as seen in our newest offering:
Bryce Canyon is not a canyon in the technical sense of the term; it was not formed by a central river or stream. Rather, it is the result of direct rain and snowfall into the amphitheaters found here. The precipitation which falls on the plateau above actually flows away from these amphitheaters.
Thanks so much to all of you who share these panoramas with your friends. This helps us greatly in maintaining this website!
All The Best,

Bryce Canyon in Utah is actually more of a giant amphitheater. This view, by moonlight, gives a glimpse of its fanciful formations:
Peeking through the clouds one can find the Big Dipper, Orion, and a partial lunar halo.
Thanks for viewing, more Bryce Canyon to come!
