Thor's Hammer

Photograph by Amy Johnson, My Shot

This picture was taken at Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah, as the sun was rising in September 2010. This rock is called Thor's Hammer. I laid down on one of the paths to get this shot. I love the yellow halo from the sun around the top and also the way the light reflected back onto the front of the hammer to give it such a distinct red glow.
