The Grand Canyon National Park
As the sun starts to go down the colors start to change, the mood sets, and the universe gets quiet.
For the next 15 minutes you can see the sun hide behind the Grand Canyon, like an orchestra performing in perfect harmony right before my eyes. I take a deep breath, take it all in, and smile.
This is what I love about photography, it’s an excuse to constantly see places like this, record a slice of time, and share it with the world.
These are my favorite shots of the Grand Canyon from my recent road trip to the West Coast.
Antelope Canyon Arizona
I have seen a million photos of this place, and I had always wondered what it was like, what it felt like, what it smelled like, and of course what it looked like in person.
I finally made it out there and it was truly amazing, seeing it for the first time was like unwrapping a present when your five years old under your christmas tree. The walls are so tall that when the sun light hits the rocks just right, they change colors like a rainbow during an afternoon rain shower.
We had a tour scheduled for 2pm, but lucky for us one opened up at noon. This is the best time to visit because the sun is directly over the canyon and you get more sun beams coming through. The tour guides are super cool, they grab handfuls of dirt from the ground and throw it in the air so you can get some shots of the beams coming through, it is truly magical.
I took lots of shots but these are some of my favorites. I will certainly be coming back some time in the near future. I will update this post soon with more photos from this place.
