Hot Springs Canyon and the Sierra del Carmen 1
Hot Springs Canyon, Big Bend
Just after sunset, the soft colors of Hot Springs Canyon in Big Bend National Park bring a unique beauty to a rugged landscape. With the Sierra del Carmen in the distance, the Rio Grande flows eastward far below, eventually spilling into the Gulf of Mexico. This photograph was taken on a cliff high above the river, and facing both east and west offered beautiful views of quickly fading evening light.
