    Dead Horse Canyon


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     saintmaker52 photographed this breathtaking image of the sun rising over Dead Horse Point State Park in Moab, Utah. He arrived while it was still completely dark out and almost walked over the cliff to get this stunning shot! 'I stopped about 8 feet before walking off the cliff about 1000 ft above the Colorado River...I stopped because there was something about the light or lack of it at the edge,' he says. 'I consider this a cautionary tale for all photographers.' This photo was included in CNN's Travel Photo of the Day gallery on February 26, 2014.

    This was shot on a cold windy November morning at Dead Horse Canyon State Park near Moab, Utah.

    I arrived while it was still dark. Almost walked off a 1000 ft cliff. And then witnessed the most amazing sunrise I had ever seen. Slowly illuminating Dead Horse Canyon. It was surreal and really wonderful.
