And the winner is:
This image was taken last year, while visiting Zion National Park in the Fall. The color display there is stunning. I camped near this location and went on a hike in the morning with camera, tripod and coffee. The color in the background is the early morning sun hitting a red rock wall. The slow shutter speed enhances (IMHO) the water flowing over the rocks.
