The park is a mecca for landscape photographers, with clear air and incredible scenery making for amazing photographs.  Offseason trips may be best in order to avoid crowds, although the best light for photographing the amphitheatre occurs during the long days of summer, with the light just after sunrise and before sunset best for bringing out the colors of the rock. Additionally, like much of the Southwest the Bryce Canyon landscape offers great opportunities to experiment with panorama photos.

You might want to experiment with panoramic photos, for Windows users, the free Autostitch program is fantastic.
