From Flagstaff take 180 North to Grand Canyon National Park. Mather Point is on the south rim and one of the first ones near the visitor center.
Taken at 24mm F22 @ 0.8 sec
This was my first time visiting the Grand Canyon and I had arrived very late the night before. I went to Mather Point for sunrise, not knowing how crowded it would get. I wanted to take a unique perspective from this point, since it is the most visited point on the South Rim. As the sun came over the rim it burst through the rock formations and gave me drama and perspective I was looking for.
