Get Up!

“Mostly cloudy with strong winds.” The weather forecast for sunrise did not look good, but I was only an hour away from the south rim of the Grand Canyon, so I knew I had to take a chance and be there when the sun rose. Driving an hour in the pre-dawn darkness can be a nerve-wracking experience up here. Less than twelve hours ago I’d seen herds of elk and deer along these same roads. I arrived at Pima Point without incident, and before the sun rose. When I shot this, the wind was blowing so hard that I had to hold down my camera/tripod and block them from the wind with my body.IMG_3770
