Visions of Grandeur

Confession time: until this trip, I have been unimpressed with the Grand Canyon, to the extent of being what some would consider to be unappreciative and disrespectful to one of America's icons. In other words, it was just a big hole in the ground to me.

Weather always plays a large role in landscape photography and the last two times I went to the Grand Canyon (South and North Rim), I went on days with clear skies and wasn't able to stay for sunset either time, which probably contributed to my dismissal of this famous location. But on this family trip, I decided to give Grand Canyon one more try, especially since in the winter, Hermit's Rest can be accessed without a shuttle bus, a spot I haven't seen before. And needless to say, at Hopi Point, a location renowned for its sunset views of the canyon because the golden light starts to kiss the canyon, it was worth the third attempt. Great light, good contrast, clouds, blue sky. What more could a photographer want?

Needless to say, my vision of the Grand Canyon has been corrected to its rightful place in America's pantheon of national parks among the must sees.
