Grand Canyon Adventure! Part 1

Beatriz and I took a trip to the incredible Grand Canyon South Rim. It was the first time either of us had been there. The grandeur of this place cannot be described in words, nor could we fathom the scale in person. We spent a quick two-day trip introducing ourselves to this beast, and I feel we've barely scratched the surface. Unfortunately, the sky had but a few wisps of clouds the day we arrived, giving way to a completely featureless, blue sky the next day. Sometimes the weather isn't at your side. Nevertheless, the first sunset we viewed along Hermit Road gave us a glimpse of the beauty so many others have photographed. This is a shot from that first evening.

I have become known for using HDR as a part of my technique, however the beautiful lighting at this moment didn't call for it. More to come in the next few days!
