Photographer's Note

This is the Second in a Series of 24 on Grand Canyon.

This photo was taken from Yavapai Point. It is located a half mile west of Mather Point. This place has an observation structure so you can observed the canyon at night and wait for lightnings that usually happen with the changing temperature. Unfortunately the observation structure is being renovated. The south rim of the Grand Canyon is located in an exposed high desert region renowned for temperature extremes. Summers are warm and dry but prone to spectacular thunderstorms and temperature drops. Winter brings freezing snowstorms. The place is about 8,300 feet above sea level but the difference between the Colorado River and the Canyon Rim is 5,000 feet. You get different colors on the mountain side as the sun changes it's position. It is breathtaking beauty. My notes were based on

PP Work: Adjust levels control; Increase saturation; Sharpen; Remove noise; Crop; Reduce size for posting.
