The sun finally began to peak over the horizon, and I set up for this shot and waited for the sun to arise to the top of the pine tree at the rim. Now the Grand Canyon here looks very different from the other views further down the canyon. The rim here is far apart and the layers and layers of buttes and mesas seem endless.

This is a lucky shot! The first bit of luck, my wife got tickets to be at the center line for the airshow in Virginia Beach! The second bit of luck was that I was able to rent a 100-400mm lens for the occasion, and it showed up on time (usually does, but sometimes I am not so lucky!). Third bit of luck was this shot, captured just as the planes were literally right in front of me!

Suddenly you come to a…
