I had been hiking all day in dark, rainy skies. With this weather I expected either a dramatic, unique light show at sunset, or a gray colorless evening. Fortunately it was the former.
As far as finding this comp, I was driving through the Islands in the Sky District in Canyonlands NP basically following the light. After breaking a few speed limits, I saw this scene line up below the small patch of sky that looked promising for some nice light and color. I pulled over on the side of the road and scrambled to the cliff's edge for this spectacular view.
