Photographing BIG SPRING CANYON OVERLOOK During a Beautiful Sunset

In this video, I captured a rocky photograph with some serious depth during sunset. Watch now and find out how I got the shot!

During my two week exploration in Utah, I stopped by The Needles in Canyonlands to see what I could photograph. I wasn’t quite sure what it would be since I’ve never been to this part of the park before.

During my 8 hour visit I witness a crow steal a bag of Swedish fish from someones car, slammed my face with my camera jumping off a rock and rolled around in the dirt trying to compose a photo that failed miserably.

This place is quite photogenic and I figured something would come about. I sure was right! I found a gem of a composition that offered lots of depth, curves to lead the eye and a sunset that aligned perfectly to give the rocks a wonderful glow. You won’t want to miss this final image so be sure to stick around to the end of the video!
