Grand Canyon

I took this shot at the Grand Canyon during my cross-country trip. The Grand Canyon always seems pretty massive in photos but until visiting, I was never able to fully appreciate it. This was my first time visiting the Grand Canyon. I didn’t know when I would be back so I took as many pictures as possible and stayed until sunset. I took this shot as the sun was setting. Usually I will look towards the sun to get the colors of the clouds near it, but the colors here were better on the canyon walls. Most of the gated tourist spots┬ádidn’t have the views I liked, but this spot wasn’t too far off the walking path.

I took this shot with my Nikon D810, and I had it mounted on my manfrotto befree tripod. I got this tripod specifically for this trip and it worked great. It barely took up any space and it was sturdy enough to hold up my D810 with a battery grip and a wide angle lens. I processed one image for this photo. Hope you like the results.
