Notom Sunrise, Capitol Reef
|Notom Sunrise in autumn|
I was hoping to find a good autumn location for sunrise and drove out here in the early dawn. The town of Notom is more of a location on a dirt road than any type of established community. There is a very old cemetery on a hill. The gravestones indicate some of the residents died in the 1800s. This hill overlooks Pleasant Creek and the surrounding cottonwood trees. It was on this hill that I set up my tripod and compose the photograph. I was delighted with the lovely autumn leaves.
