Yes, The Canyon is GRAND! And so much so that I found it challenging to even think about how to make photographs without them simply being bad versions of what others have done before. Once I got my ego in check and admitted that this will probably be true, I enjoyed just seeing the place in all the different light and from so many different points of view. Although you’ll never see any of them in National Geographic, I knew I could not go wrong if I just took the time to really see the amazing sight right in front of me!
As I processed the images I became fascinated with the several that showed a similar part of the Canyon at different times and with different light. These were all made from the rim looking toward Kaibab trailhead.
One other photograph, even if it isn’t a classic “GC” photo, could become a favorite:
Estimates are that two TRILLION photographs will be made this year. Makes my dilemma of photographing the Canyon seem pretty minor!
