Morning at Moran Point

Grand Canyon photo by Adam Schallau
Today, February 12th, would have been Thomas Moran’s birthday. Moran was an American painter and printmaker of the Hudson River School in New York. Moran said of the Grand Canyon “Of all places on earth the great canyon of Arizona is the most inspiring in its pictorial possibilities.”

In honor of Moran and his work I thought I would share my favorite photo from Moran Point on the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park.
