Capture Bryce Canyon Monsoon Season
Utah › Inspiration Point
Added by Phill Monson
During monsoon season, you'll have amazing photography opportunities with dramatic weather and unbelievable light conditions.
While Bryce Canyon National Park is amazing during any season (Winter is also a must see), the summer Monsoons that pass through Bryce are a photographers dream come true. Incredible rock formations mixed with unbeatable light and weather make for a unique opportunity to capture truly dynamic images.
Bryce Canyon offers a few hotel options for the delicate, and primitive to groomed camping for the more adventurous - in any event, the last thing you care about is a place to put your head when you are chasing storms as they roll into the Bryce Amphitheater. Any viewpoint will do, though I prefer the Sunset and Inspiration Point vistas for their vantage points over the park.
While Monsoons offer amazing light and weather conditions, they can also bring lightning. Bryce is known for having some of the most intense lightning storms in the state, so if the weather gets too crazy, remember safety first - standing out on the canyon rim with a metal tripod might not be the best combination in such conditions, just sayin'. Stay safe!
- Bring literally all of your photography gear.
- If you have two cameras, keep a wide angle on one, and a telephoto on the other.
- Camping gear
- Warm sleeping bag
