Even though you can capture amazing sunrises in many places within Bryce Canyon National Park, this overlook is still one of the most popular places to view the sunrise. It can get pretty crowded, even in the winter and early spring. To photograph the sunrise, you need to arrive during the pre-dawn hours, set up your tripod and wait for the light show to start. On this, my first morning in the park, the colors of the sunrise did not disappoint. I arrived about 45 minutes prior to sunrise and was the first person at the overlook.
I used my Canon 5DS and 16-35mm f2.8 Mk III lens on a tripod. I did not use a CPL filter and, for this image, did not use a grad ND, either.
The trail you see below is the Queens Garden trail.
