Eternal Inferno

Devils Canyon Overlook (West View toward Wyoming) 

Devils Canyon is home for many birds of prey with an abundance of food and nesting opportunities. On my visit I saw several raptors including a golden eagle who flew up the face of the canyon wall just feet from where I was painting. It soared into the sky backlit by the sun with its feathers penetrated by the rays, the beams turning the bird a semi translucent brilliant greenish gold.
