South Kiabab Trailhead, Grand Canyon

South Kiabab Trailhead, Grand Canyon

Photographer: Bill Woolam

Description: In February for the last 20 years, a group of friends and family have hiked to the bottom of Grand Canyon via the South Kaibab Trail, spending two nights at Phantom Ranch and then hiking up by the Bright Angel Trail. The views are always spectacular since they’re weather-related. But this year, the views were the most spectacular we’ve ever seen with snow flurries in the canyon and early-morning light shining through to make the view of the canyon and its colors spectacular. We all stopped and stood in awe at this unusual scenery.

Gear & Settings: iPhone 6S, 4.15mm (35mm equivalent 29mm). Exposure: 1/2300 sec., ƒ/2.2, ISO 25.
