Sunrise at Santa Elena Canyon

Sunrise at Santa Elena Canyon - Captured this wonderful sunrise in west Texas just as the sun rays pop over the nearby mountains from this vantage point in Santa Elena Canyon in Big Bend National Park. I climb up the rocky canyon walls and waited for the sky to light up and it rewarded me with a beautiful sunrise along the Rio Grande river as it flow down stream toward the gulf that always a good day. The Rio Grande river continue it flow downstream through the Santa Elena Canyons through Big Bend toward the gulf of Mexico. A wonderful sunrise with the sun rays along the horizon over the Rio Grande landscape from my vantage point in the Santa Elena Canyon. In this image you can see the colorful clouds through the octillo and prickly pear catus growing on the steep cliff of the canyon walls of this wonderful Texas landscape.  The Rio Grande river changes direction abruptly after following beneath the Sierra Ponce cliffs for several miles heading west, cutting through the mountains via a deep, narrow gorge.  This area has national significance as the largest protected area of Chihuahuan Desert topography and ecology in the United States. The desert landscape contains more than 1,200 species of plants, more than 450 species of birds, 56 species of reptiles, and 75 species of mammals.

The gallery wrap arrives at your doorstep ready to hang. After an order is submitted, the canvas usually arrives within 5-6 business days.
