Below you will find the new monthly installment of "UTM Photo of the Month".  For this month, I selected something from the archive:

Dawn at Artist Point, Yellowstone Canyon — Yellowstone National Park

This was one of many memorable photographic moments during my Fall of2006 trip to Yellowstone National Park. Artist Point is a famousphotography spot at Yellowstone, and I was hoping for wonderful softlight just prior to sunrise. I was more than pleased with what I got,which was a few high cirrus clouds lit up in a vivid, saturated pinkcolor to complement the extraordinary landscape of the Yellowstonecanyon and Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River. Date: September 19,2006. Exposure was f/9 at 1/5 seconds, ISO 200, shot with the Nikon D70at a 24mm focal length.
