Navajo Point
Lens: Pentax DA 55-300 mm Camera: Pentax K-5 Photo Location: Grand Canyon ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F13.5 
Posted By: GeoJerry, 11-19-2015, 12:49 AM

Taken on a recent drive trip through Arizona. This one is at Navajo Point, the easternmost lookout at the Grand Canyon. I was initially disappointed in driving all the way up here for a sunset shot, but there wasn't a cloud in the sky. I liked the orange glow though, so I went home happy!

Beautiful! Sometimes the best shots come when you're least expecting them

I like the varying deep shades, and how they clash with that orange glow. Striking.

I like it. The colourful shading of the mountains against that yellow sky. Beautiful shot.

Thanks luftluss! I was surprised when looking at this several days later that I took it at f/13 1/250. Seems like it was much darker than that.
