Colorado River as it Cuts Through Canyonlands NP

Two major rivers cut through Canyonlands NP in Utah: the Colorado and the Green. I took this image downstream from their confluence. My thanks to Redtail Aviation in Moab. At dawn on the day of my  flight, I was initially disappointed to see heavy rain. Redtail offered to postpone the flight, but on reflection, I saw it as a rare opportunity to photograph the weather that created this rugged landscape. As we circled southeastern Utah, the sun randomly popped through the clouds to create shots like this.
