Recent summer storms provided outstanding conditions at the Grand Canyon, if you were lucky enough to be there at the right time. Finally, this year my timing worked out and I spent a couple of days at the North Rim enjoying the light show. Sometimes the winds created horizontal rain that pinged your face and lens both. I loved it, and was able to work the scene between scattered rain. I wonder if I'll ever see this again....

Great image, has a real emotional feel, I can feel the first really big drops of rain hitting my face just looking at it

Nice depth, and very natural looking color, and of course the excellent detail that the 5DSr brings is evident as well.

Now this is nice!
The muted canyon colors & the ominous clouds w/virga really set a great mood.

Thanks for posting

Hey Jeffrey,

This is a really interesting shot. Love all those areas of rain pouring down. A super feature in this.

This is terrific, Jeffery. I bet this would work wonderfully as a B&W conversion.

I am a fan of your images Jeffrey. They are processed in a way that preserves their natural look. It's all about nature and atmosphere.
It's refreshing to see this in today's over-processed world.

Beautiful shot Jeffrey. When we went to the Canyon years ago we were unfortunate to encounter sunny skies hardly any cloud cover.

Beautiful shot Jeffrey. I hope I get the same kind of weather when we go back to the Canyon.

Jeffrey, This is a very nice image. There is something majestic, powerful about those storms unleashing their pent up waters over the thirsty land. I love the North Rim and did my first overnight backpacking trip there last year.

As Fred commented, I like the natural look of this image. Simply beautiful. - BLR

Hi Jeffrey,

There are so many things to like about this image, but they seem pretty well covered in the comments above. I'll just say that the title is fantastic too

I appreciate all the kind comments.

Fred and Ubuhle, thanks for appreciating the naturalness that I strive for, even in such a wild and dramatic scene.
