Arriving at Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah, during evening hours, I headed for sunset point. Clouds on the western horizon muted the warm sunset colors so many visitors departed the park. I elected to dwell at the canyon rim and watch distant the storm clouds on the eastern horizon develop and spread towards the park. Although official sunset has passed for park viewers, the height of the cumulonimbus clouds still caught the warm colors creating this colorful vista. This panoramic image was formed from 77 bracketed images that swept across the horizon.
