- Description: Spring sunrise at Mather Point on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. I used a 3-stop soft-edge ND filter to cut down the bright sky as the rising morning sun cast incredible light rays and shadow lines across the canyon. 1/320 sec, f/8, 70-200mm zoom @ 75mm, circular polarizer to eliminate foreground glare. Black & White conversion with NIK Silver EFEX.
- Gear: Nikon D700, Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 zoom, Gitzo tripod, Really Right Stuff ballhead, Lee polarizer & ND Grad filter
