Photo Of The Day By Ryan Cairl

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Sometimes You Just Get Lucky” by Ryan Cairl. Location: Arizona.

“Sometimes you just get lucky in photography,” says Cairl. “I made this image at the Toroweap overlook in Grand Canyon National Park. Feeling somewhat deflated with very smoky skies eliminating any hopes for astrophotography, I walked along the overlook marveling at the 3,000-foot cliffs below me and took it all in. I noticed a person in the distance starting to get very close to the edge and look down, so I grabbed my zoom lens and fired off a few shots. To this day, I have no idea who this person was, but they were enjoying the same awesome view I was at this point in time.”
