Visiting and Photographing the Grand Canyon
The views in Arizona at the Grand Canyon are simply awe inspiring, and it is difficult for photographs to convey the feeling of being there.
Most visits to the Grand Canyon start with a trip to the South Rim, just north of the city of Tusayan, Arizona. I view the South Rim in two sections. There is the section on the east end that allows you to drive to each of the viewpoints and there is the section on the west end that requires that you take the shuttle system.
The viewpoints to the east include Yavapai Point, Yaki Point, Mather Point, Grandview Point, Moran Point, Lipan Point, Navajo Point and Desert View Watchtower. Every viewpoint has its own personality and views, but Grandview Point is probably my favorite, with good views to both east and west for sunrise and sunset and it's also rarely crowded.
For me, the viewpoints to the west have a significantly different feel. They include Maricopa Point, Powell Point, Hopi Point, Mohave Point, Pima Point and Hermit’s Rest at the end of the road. I recall being on the first shuttle of the day at 5:00am to have a sunrise opportunity.
As a photographer, I prefer being able to move freely from viewpoint to viewpoint, making moment to moment decisions based on radar information and weather conditions. This is critical when chasing images of storms over the canyon.
If you’re doing any serious photography, I recommend staying inside the park at one of the park lodges. I tend to stay at the Maswik Lodge or Bright Angel Lodge. This allows you to go back and forth to the viewpoints without having to deal with traffic backups at the park entrance station.
Summer storms tend to move from south to north and the North Rim viewpoints are a great place to photograph them coming across the canyon. The view at Cape Royal is my favorite, but the views at Point Imperial and from behind the Grand Canyon Lodge at Bright Angel Point are excellent.
The Grand Canyon offers the photographer more than just the big, wide-angle scene. Using a telephoto lens, there are opportunities to capture shadows at the bottom of the canyon, the Colorado River and more.
For the non-photographer, there are plenty of things to do like hiking, camping, riding a mule down into the canyon and overnight rafting trips down the river. You can also get to the Park via the Grand Canyon Railway from Williams, Arizona.
If you can, spend some time at Grand Canyon National Park. You will be well rewarded.
Fun Facts About Grand Canyon National Park
Grand Canyon National Park is one of 63 National Parks in the United States and was designated as such in 1919 by Congress and President Woodrow Wilson. The Park is located in central Arizona near Flagstaff, covers over 1.2 million acres and receives over 6 million visitors each year.
The Park includes 277 miles of the Colorado River. The Grand Canyon is a mile deep and up to 18 miles wide and displays layer upon layer of geological history. Hiking to the Canyon floor is one of the most difficult hikes there is and is only attempted by a small number of people. It has a desert feel, but much different than the Desert Southwest or Death Valley.
