Colorado River from Grandview Point
This is the view upstream, towards the northeast from Grandview Point as the Sun is starting to set on Thursday night. You can see the Colorado River near center. Before the river was dammed at Glen Canyon, the river would have been a brown color instead of the bluish color seen here. The spire left of center is called Solomon Temple. The river runs through Tanner Canyon, Basalt Canyon and then Cardenas Canyon in the area that it is visible. Just north of the river (to the left) is Basalt Cliffs and Ochoa Point. This image was taken at 70mm focal length with an exposure of 1/500 seconds at f/8, ISO 100.
