Description

The most recognized and easily photographed icon in Bryce Canyon, Thor's Hammer, is seen in countless advertisements and promotional materials for the park. It's unique form and the surrounding elements are so typical of the spectacle awaiting the visitors. Here it is depicted in the early morning with warm directional lighting. A nearby pine tree in the foreground adds contrast to the color and texture of the rocks while the expanse of Bryce amphitheater extends to the horizon in the background.
