This view from Fossil Point Overlook, also known as Thelma and Louise Point, offers impressive views of a nicely iced Colorado River as it flows into Canyonlands National Park, Utah. This was the first time I've seen ice flows in the river like this, it was really neat!
It was right here where the iconic ending of the movie Thelma and Louise was filmed, though most folks go looking for it at Deadhorse State Park (a view of the area from above, but this is where the car drove off the cliff into the "Grand Canyon"). It's a bit off the beaten track, so we usually have had this overlook to ourselves when we visit. It was my birthday when we visited on this day and again we had the place to ourselves with my wife doing yoga on the rocks and me taking far too many photos. ;-)))
Image Notes: Triple-processed RAW: once for sky, once for shadows and once for mid-tones. I used Tony Kuyper's luminosity masks techniques for assisting in blending the results together. Canyons make for some of the most challenging post-processing for sure!
