Grand Canyon, Grand Light

Here's the first Grand Canyon image I'll share with you, taken just before sunrise from a spot along the South Rim. Before sunrise. The light you see was reflected from the bright sky in the East, before the sun broke the horizon. Soft, warm, golden, sweet light. Sure, it helps that the subject being lit is breathtaking. But fine-art photography is about the quality of the light. It's about making the subject look amazing, without colored filters or Photoshop or gimmicks. It's about the light.
