Photographer's Note

Expecting to encounter quite a bit of competition from other photographers, I got to Dead Horse Point at 5:40 am, about 35 minutes before sunrise. Fortunately I beat most of them and got a pretty good spot at the edge of a cliff below the main viewpoint.

I was expecting a beautiful sight, but nothing like this. It was one of the most incredible sunrise experiences I've had. Dead Horse Point is photographed over and over and over, but until you've been there for sunrise, you can't imagine how incredible it is.

This view is looking more to the south, as opposed to the standard view toward the Gooseneck Bend. The canyons in the distance are not part of the state park, but are federal land.
