One Amazing Little Rainbow

Caught this rainbow dancing along the desert floor near Marble Canyon at Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona. It played with the monsoonal clouds passing through to provide some abstract images. A time lapse video of this rainbow and surrounding storms will follow soon.  These images are available as prints or downloadable files for personal use at Dawn2dawnPhotography.com

On The Edge

I got brave last week and ventured out to the edge of this point that looks toward Marble Canyon and the Grand Canyon. I set up my camera on a tripod and set the timer to release the shutter every 15 seconds. That was as far as I got to the edge! Looked like a 2,000 foot drop below.
