When I'd been at this overlook to the Green River years ago with my Nikon D90, it had been a bright afternoon, and I was still learning much with exposure and metering. Still Getty liked it enough to license it. For this trip though, I got up much earlier and used the cloud cover to allow for a better exposure that seemingly brought out a more accurate color for this setting. With the height I had from this overlook, I decided to angle my SLR camera downward, capturing a view that swept across this open landscape of Canyonlands National Park. One would then find the eyes drawn to the canyons and Green River before coming to more the more distant cliff walls and mesas. High above the blue skies and clouds would complement the setting adding a color contrast to the reds and brows below.

Somewhat resembling a buttressed Egyptian statue, Elaterite Butte rises above Horse Canyon in the Maze District of Canyonlands National Park, as viewed from near Panorama Point. The road cutting a cross the bottom is the access to Millard Canyon on the Green River. The brilliant white layer is White Rim Sandstone, a fairly resistant layer found through much of Canyonlands. The red/ white banded layers below is Cedar Mesa Sandstone, which makes up much of the Needles District of Canyonlands.
