A new feature for 2018, I am posting a photograph of the day and sharing my work with you.

Panorma of early morning sunrise at Bright Angel Point, Grand Canyon National Park, north rim.

I simply love the Grand Canyon.  And I really love the north rim.  It is such a starkly different view of the Grand Canyon than you get being on the south rim.  For one thing, there is significantly less people!  The north rim only sees about 15% of the visitors to the Grand Canyon.  So from a photographer's viewpoint, you are very likely to have access to overlooks all by yourself and not have to jockey for position or deal with others.

But, and you knew there would be a "but," but the distance between overlooks can be significant, in some cases almost 25 miles between viewpoints.  And there are not that many viewpoints, not like the south rim where there are oodles of viewpoints.

This particular viewpoint is one seen from Bright Angel Point on the north rim, just down from the north rim lodge. It gives you a sense of the inner canyon and the views are markedly different from Cape Royal or Point Imperial.  But still pretty impressive.  

This is a panorama comprised of seven photographs taken with a Canon 5D Mark II shooting with my EF 70-200mm f/4L IS. I shot these photographs at 78mm, at f/8, 1/60sec at ISO 100 in the early morning just after sunrise. I stitched the photographs together in Lightroom, did some processing, then finished up in Photoshop removing dust spots and using Nik's ColorEfx Pro plugin to give the photograph a little punch.

for Purchase

Back in 1982, my Air Force roommate was in desperate need of some cash, and he had a camera. And I was in the market for a camera as I had TDY (Temporary Duty) orders for Cyprus and was looking for a good camera to take with me. So over some beers and some negotiations with my roommate (and a few hundred dollars later), I found that I had become the owner of a brand spanking new Canon AE-1 camera with an assortment of lens, including a Canon 50mm, a 35mm lens, as well as a telephoto lens.

Fast forward to today, and I am now an owner of a Canon 5D Mark II (looking to upgrade, but can't decide on my next camera) and a bunch of Canon glass and I am primarily a landscape and travel photographer. Yea, that means that I get up before the sun rises and am out after the sun sets. Makes for interesting times!

Thank you for joining me on this photographic journey and hope to hear from you!
