Santa Elena Sunrise

Sunrise at Santa Elena Canyon.

I am really not sure if you need to say more than that. This is a location that speaks for itself.

It is also a very easy picture. A-Get to canyon before sunrise. B-When sun hits canyon wall take picture. C-Go "oooooh" and "aaaaahhhhh".

Santa Elena Canyon by Night

Santa Elena Canyon in Big Bend National Park is a fantastic location to both visit and photograph.

I have photographed it many times over my visits. This last trip I got down to the canyon mouth on a clear morning to photograph it in the dark.

The stars of the night sky. The river flowing by. The huge walls of the Sierra Ponce.

What a great place.
