Glowing Tree Trunk

Sunrise and sunsets can play many tricks with light. It was a cool, brisk late March day at Dead Horse Point State Park near Moab, Utah. The sunset itself had not been all that spectacular, and we had arrived rather late. Walking around the rim, though, I spotted some gnarly, ancient tree trunks still rooted in the rock hundreds of feet above the valley floor. As the sun started to dip down over Canyonlands National Park, its fiery glow caught the underside of this twisted piece of wood for just a fleeting moment. It was almost as if it were on fire!
