Yavapai Point View - Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

To say the Grand Canyon is immense would be a huge understatement. With an area that encompasses over 1.2 million acres, a length of 277 miles and about a mile deep, it is impossible to capture its magnificence in a single photograph. When you do try to photograph it, you must pick small microcosms of the landscape and have the best light possible. That is why photographing it in the early morning and at sunset is a must to get a decent shot. Photographing the canyon during the rest of the day only results in terrible haze (at least that has been my experience). With that in mind, I camped out at Tavapai Point during the last hour of sun and tried to get the light on the point and the background as clear as possible to show the crevices and shadows.
