A Varying Landscape in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

From this slight rise on the trail I was walking, I was able to then angle my SLR camera slightly downward and capture this more sweeping view across a portion of Painted Canyon. While I could have included more of a wider angle view, I didn't want to go much beyond the canyon walls that I did include. Part of the reason was the idea of what I wanted to compose and include in this image. Including the canyon walls a more definitive end of the image rather than a horizon that stretch to a far away point. Another was a more practical reason with the sun almost directly ahead and how it tended to wash out much of the vibrant colors I might capture. For this image, I used a tripod to mount my Nikon SLR camera and then used a CamRanger so that I could meter and compose the image captured.
