One thing that this shot doesn't show is how cold it was here - something like 10 below zero on the celcius scale. Most of the other photographers coming from warm hotel rooms didn't last too long. I was in full thermals, then long hiking gear, with Gortex on top for warmth. In addition, I got a litre of hot drink into me before heading off to photograph. Bryce is a magical place - it's hard to grasp the scale until you focus in on the full size trees in the amphitheater, and realize this stitched image takes in a number of kilometers of scenery.
