Photo of the Day

Bryce Canyon in Utah covered in snow
February 10, 2016

First Snow, First Light

Your Shot member Nick Ocean caught the first snow of the season in Utah’s Bryce Canyon National Park in November 2015. This early morning shot, taken from the aptly named Sunrise Point, required some off-road driving and skirting around a downed tree. All that work earned Ocean the privilege of being the only person in the park to enjoy this particular scene.
