p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Sunset At Grand Canyon


I had taken a trip to Grand Canyon to experience staying in a RV. This is my first trip in a RV. I didn't expect the camp sites to get booked so quickly. Some of the sites are booked for the entire month!! I did manage to get a site at KOA, Williams.

While RV was the main intention of the trip, I was treated with some amazing light across the canyon.

This is my 5th trip to Grand Canyon and the place never stops to amaze me. This sunset is definitely one of the best I had experienced and will definitely be the most memorable one for me.

One the way back I also did manage to stop over at Sedona to catch the evening light. Will try to process them soon.

Thanks for looking and I do welcome C&C.

Anand

Nice shot. I have been RV'ing for many years and think it's the best way to see this country. Hope you enjoyed your first effort.

Very lovely colors on the canyon!
Everything books very quickly around Grand Canyon; however, Desert View Trailer Village is fcfs, and there is a limit on a length of stay.

Nicely seen - I use a travel trailer whenever I can - I like it a LOT better than hotels.

Beautiful shot. I have a couple of thousand shots that shows it is not easy to shoot the Grand Canyon. Great job!

Agreed. Nice conditions, good color/tones and fun composition. My only nit-pick is the tree encroaching on the frame on the left. As awesome as the GC is, it drives me crazy how difficult it is to shoot.

Also, the secret to camping near the rim is Kaibab National Forest. Forget the NP campgrounds.

Great shot and beautiful conditions! I agree with Slab about that little tree bit though.

Nice shot! Besides the good composition, I particularly like that you haven't gone overboard on the saturation.

Dazzling colors. I was there a couple of weeks ago but just for a couple of (non-sunset) hours. This shot does a super job conveying the vastness of the canyon. Looking forward to your Sedona shots.

I am glad that you enjoyed yourself. No matter the place to set your camera or your bed if they are iconic there will be a fight on. Great take. J.R.

Hi Anand,

A beautiful view here. I am glad your trip with an RV worked out well. As a few others noted, cropping out that tree poking in on the left would be real nice. Also, for me a little more contrast in the canyon itself would be of benefit here.

I will try cropping or cloning the tree out. While taking the shot itself I realized that would be a distraction. I couldn't avoid it as I was too close to the ledge for the angle.

Jim, with regards to the contrast, I will try to give it a go. I am right now working on my laptop monitor that does give very different results as compared to my regular monitor.

Thanks for you comments once again.

Anand
