An ephemeral waterfall plunges into the Grand Canyon as a monsoon storm breaks and golden light strikes the canyon walls. Within another minute or two this waterfall was gone. From mile 166 on the Colorado River in Grand Canyon National Park.

Summer rain falls as sunset approaches, and the Colorado River reflects the golden sky as it snakes through the shadowy depths of Grand Canyon.

I could spend years photographing the geology down along the Colorado River deep within Grand Canyon. It’s a world full of beautiful shapes, texture, and color. Here we see a vein of pink Zoroaster Granite within Vishnu Schist.

Happy birthday to the artist Thomas Moran who was born on this date in 1837. Moran was a painter of the Hudson River School of art and created stunning paintings of many western scenes including Grand Canyon. His work was known for capturing a romantic sense of color and atmosphere. I often seek out conditions that allow me to capture scenes that I feel are similar to what he may have painted. I call this piece ‘Dancing Rain’ and it was captured in May 2015 from a perch on the South Rim near Hopi Point.

Winter storms at the Grand Canyon often mean reduced visibility, as in the canyon pretty much disappears for hours or even days at a time, as the clouds move in and the snow falls. On this date in February 2013 I waited nearly all day standing on the rim of the canyon surrounded by clouds hoping for a break in just such a storm. The wind was howling and the temperature was well below freezing. I had taken a fall on the ice while setting up my camera & tripod, I was sore and frustrated, and I was just about ready to give up when suddenly the atmosphere began to take on a subtle glow. Within less than a minute the clouds began to part and the sky over the canyon opened up allowing sunlight to stream through and strike the canyon walls.

A winter walk through the forest on the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park is a transformative experience. The only sound you hear is the wind whispering through the tall Ponderosa pines, the crunch of fresh snow under your feet, and the beating of your heart.

Mount Hayden rises above an inversion layer of clouds. This inversion formed the morning after a period of heavy monsoon rains the day before. From Point Imperial, the highest viewpoint in Grand Canyon National Park, on the North Rim.

It’s not always blazing sunsets viewed from a perch 5,000 feet above the river. Sometimes it’s a peaceful moment along the river listening to the sounds of the water, wind, and a canyon wren. Looking upstream from river left near mile 114 on the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon.

After sunrise on New Year’s Day, Sally and I stood on the edge of the canyon watching as it slowly filled with clouds. Every few minutes a window into the canyon would open, usually only for a few seconds, before closing again. This was one of those moments.

On this day in 1908, President Theodore Roosevelt designated more than 800,000 acres in Northern Arizona as Grand Canyon National Monument.

“The Grand Canyon fills me with awe, you cannot improve on it. But what you can do is keep it for your children, your children's children and all who come after you, as the one great sight which every American should see.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt

I’m so thankful that we have been blessed to have thoughtful leaders in the past. I’m forever grateful for their wisdom in valuing, protecting, and preserving our natural wonders.
