    • Thanks Eliza. Sometimes I don’t think I’ve captured how really big these canyon walls really are. They seem so much more massive and awe inspiring in person.

      • One of the challenges of photography – scale!

      • They are very impressive. But I think they would best be appreciated, printed quite large and on a wall somewhere.

    Wow the light! Great capture, Michael. It looks cold, hope you didn’t camp out there.

  4. You live a mile from one of the most breathtakingly humbling places in this country–what great fortune. Your images capture its majesty. It’s one of my favorite places, ever.

  7. Fantastic set, Michael. The landscape with the spot of sunlight and the snowy trees against the red rock especially caught my eye. Wonderful.

  8. The light is gorgeous ! Do you often get more snow than that ? It looks like there is only a tiny layer of snow

    • Thanks. No, we don’t get too much snow. In the highest elevations, we’ll get feet of snow. I wish we received more snow but this is mostly a desert environment. Also, the snow doesn’t stick much to the steep vertical canyon walls
