Wind Down

Photograph by Vic Buhay, National Geographic Your Shot

Your Shot member Vic Buhay went on a photo road trip with a colleague through Utah and Arizona. At their first stop, Bryce Canyon National Park, they hiked the Navajo Loop Trail. “This view opened up as this trail turned into a twisting and winding [path] to the bottom of the valley below,” he says. “The setting sun's golden light bounced all over the red rock walls of the canyon.”

I like the way you're drawn into the photo by the leading lines and I love the colours and the light hitting the peaks.

Beautiful ! and also kind of scary coz of the high walls and seemingly no exit

I love the stark change from red to gold - and the hint of the height and the depth. Nearly went there a few years ago - look like I missed out!

The towering sunlit peaks and the winding trail descending into shadow are the stuff of legends.
