Sunset Rocks

The red rocks of Zion change with the light.

At dawn they're orange, as the yellow light of the rising sun floods across the high desert.

At midday they're almost too bright to look at directly, sandwiched between the white of the high limestone and the green of the valley.

And at sunset they flame red, red, red. Above the pinnacles and cliffs the sky fades to pale blue, and the airliners flying the great circle north from LA and Vegas shine bright, trailing white contrails north.

That's a great hue you've captured there. I've only seen Zion at just after mid day. It was September '97 and you're right. High index sunglases were needed when looking directly at them.
