We arrived at Bryce Canyon, Utah late yesterday afternoon. We shot for a while and then hit the sack early – because we got up at 4:30 AM today to catch the sunrise. Getting up early paid off!

Today’s tip: Shoot HDR when shooting into the sun. For the top shot, my exposures were: EV0, EV +2, EV -2, EV -3, EV-4. As you can see, exposures were not the same over and under EV0 – that’s because I wanted to capture all the detail in the beautiful sky.

Well, I’ll catch you tomorrow with another photo and some tips.
