The Temple of the Sun by tourofnature The Temple of the Sun by tourofnature
An incredible display of light over an incredible landscape. In the right of the image is the free-standing Monolith called "Temple of the Sun". It was a sunrise one feels privileged to witness.

Temple of the Sun, Capital Reef NP, Utah.

"The Temple of the Sun" by *tourofnature is truly a stunning piece to behold! With unbelievable lighting accompanying the extraordinary circumstances under which this shot was taken, the impact of this photo is one of earthshaking magnitude. His skills with the camera are clearly evident in this shot, and the perfect exposure, color contrasting, and even angle of choice for this photo just prove to us yet AGAIN that *tourofnature is a photographer that we should all dub as one worthy of respect, and also as an up and coming photographer whose work is extremely promising (meaning that we should all await his future work with bated breath!)

Great job, *tourofnature!! You're DEFINITELY on THIS deviant's watch list ^^

Holy shit, man. That is outstanding. Exceptional colors -- the clouds are amazing, and you caught a rainbow. Very nice.

Awesome photo. Although when you say "Temple of the Sun" I think "Commander Keen, Episode IV".

DUDE!!! Wayson, this is incredible man. I've been dying to get out there, but I'm not sure my subaru would make it. Did you take the element? Was the road alright? This is such a killer shot. Hands down, the best temple of the sun photo I've seen.

Haha, thanks Chris. The road was good most of the way but there are a few washes that would give you trouble in the Subie. There was one on the way out that we almost couldn't get out of. Sabrina was standing outside as I made like 6 attempts in the Element to get out of the wash, pretty sketchy!
