Probably about a mile into our hike into the Narrows, I spotted this tree. With the morning sun in the canyon, all the trees were a bright yellow or green color. Not wanting to miss good light at a better location, I shot this hand held at a speed much slower than I normally would shoot handheld. I had to crop it down and darken some parts that were blown out in order to expose the darker shadow. While I am sure the Narrows are beautiful all the time, the fall color added some contrast and the morning light after sunrise was great.
