1) sunburst

2) through the arch

I got there about 45 min before sunrise in the dead of winter...parking lot is already full. Already 15 people lined in the prime spots haha! I had to squeeze in at the end.

    Yeeks! How many people might be there in better weather?

    I prefer the second image. That orange is overwhelming the image though. Any way you can dim it down in HSL using Saturation and Luminance?

    Nice set! I prefer the image with Washer Woman in the background. No rhyme or reason for the amount of people on a given day. I've been there in the winter on a day like this with all the people, and a mid week day right after Easter jeep week with only a couple other photographers.

    I don't know where I'm going, but I'm going anyway.

    Luck happens when preparation meets opportunity!

    Wonderful Daniel! It is a mad house and you found a way to still get the shots!

    David I may do that. Honestly, I have never that kind of orange..it's almost "blown out" but it was like that to begin with.

    Thanks for commenting Jerry.

    Thanks for commenting roaddog52, this was the only angle I could get!

    Thanks for commenting Taz..you are really taking it to another level btw. I am so proud!

    You took this in RAW, I hope? Then it is probably possible.
