Sunrise over Palo Duro Canyon

Sunrise over Palo Duro Canyon from the scenic overlook

I got up early to photograph pied-billed grebes that have been hanging out on a stream on the golf course in Canyon. I was up before light and noticed that the clouds were just right on the eastern horizon for a perfect sunrise. I headed straight the Palo Duro Canyon and was there in time to capture some photographs. I’m still not happy with my landscape photographs but they seem to be getting a little better. It seems to me impossible to be able to capture the enormity of a Panhandle sunrise by camera. at least I see them in person.  Get Outside people, it’s beautiful out there.

  1. I’m sooo glad you attempted to capture the sunrise because it was breath-taking!!! I agree that it’s hard to capture good shots of the sky, whether it is the beautiful colors of sunrises/sunsets or large thunderheads but one still has to give it a shot (pun intended)!
