Grand Canyon Panorama ~ Wotan’s Throne

  I believe that one of the most magnificent views of the Grand Canyon is from Cape Royal on the North Rim. It's a view that I think everyone should see at least once in their life. Myself, I've been very lucky to not only visit, but also photograph from this location many times. The [...]

Temple in the Clouds

  This image was created on the same morning as the image in the post "Waiting for a Window" and was a scene that lasted only a matter of seconds as clouds once again obscured the view. Due to the fierce winds and some blowing snow, I was shooting with two camera bodies in order to avoid [...]

Cardenas over the Colorado

  The Colorado River is often lost amongst the temple, buttes, and towering walls of the Grand Canyon. Even when it is visible it is overshadowed by the sheer scale of the other natural features which surround it. From a point on the canyon's South Rim I created this photo of the Colorado flowing into the shadows of the [...]

Autumnal Grace

  Every autumn in the American West, landscape photographers seek-out large forests of aspen trees for their golden leaves and white trunks. The cottonwood tree on the other hand is often overlooked. It's leaves too can glow with an intense yellow with a bit of an orange hue. Their trunks are just as magnificent with [...]

Canyon Fire ~ Grand Canyon National Park

  You can wait years for a sunset like this, one of the most amazing displays of color that I have witnessed at the canyon. It was almost as if the light and color was painting the atmosphere in the canyon. If you look closely you can see that even the Colorado River, hidden 5,000 feet [...]
