Canyons of the Southwest – 11

And now we come to the end of this photo review with my personal best shot of the trip. We got up at 3:30 am the first morning in the Grand Canyon and we drove for over 1 1/2 hours to get to a spot where you can get a fantastic view of a rock formation called Wotan’s Throne. We were in position to capture the sunrise this morning and there was a very strong amount of clouds in the sky that could either block the sun completely or create a spectacular sky and sunrise. At first we were disappointed because it remained dark and cloudy but some large holes developed in the clouds and the sun began to peak through. We played with the light for the better part of 30 minutes and it finally opened up enough to highlight the incredible rock formations and colors all the way across to the outside of the canyon. This was such a treat and I shot this beautiful image that I am very proud of. I hope you enjoy this photo also !! I am calling this image “Sunrise at Wotan’s Throne”.
