Description

After sunrise, our workshop group was shooting at Mather Point in the Grand Canyon. I was using a telephoto zoom lens to try to find a nice composition within the vast scene that sprawled in front of us. The s-curve of the Colorado River was provided a nice main element and the contrasting color of the geology and green trees made for a nice backdrop. Then I noticed some nice light hitting the middle of the "s" which made for a nice accent on the whole scene. I liked the way the bright light draws in the eye and gives a jumping off point to follow several paths through the image. Settings: f/16, 0.3 sec., ISO 200
