Bryce Canyon National Park - Top 10 Winter Landscape Photographs

Bryce Canyon National Park - Top 10 Winter Landscape Photographs

In January of 2021, a huge winter storm was headed for Southern Utah. Knowing ski traffic in the Cottonwood Canyons would be insane, I opted out and headed for Bryce Canyon National park to celebrate my birthday in style.

Arriving in late twilight, I entered the park to get eyes on the conditions, absolutely dumping, I couldn't have timed this trip better. With the storm set to clear overnight, I knew the next morning would be one of the most important pursuits of the trip. Within darkness I woke up to over 18" of fresh snowfall blanketing a surreal desert landscape. Over the course of 5 days, I worked my ass off in the cold and wind, shooting sunrise, scouting locations with mid-day hikes, shooting sunset, and most evenings rallying after a quick meal to hike back in and shoot within the middle of night. Words can’t describe how beautiful the scenery is, it’s literally a sensory overload with so much contrasting color.

Here are my Top 10 Winter Landscape Images from Bryce Canyon National Park:
