You take the best photographs of this place... and that's saying something. The reason I think so is because you focus more on the way light affects the canyon rather than just trying to fit the whole canyon into a single shot without regards to composition or lighting... The Grand Canyon is such a sight that it often makes for a good capture no matter what angle you come at it from, but the extra heart and effort you put into the time and place you click the shutter makes you a cut above the rest ^-^
Thank you I appreciate it! Though I know there are far better photos from here than mine. I think it is by far the most difficult subject to photograph. Lately I have strayed away from the wide angle views and focused more on the interior patterns and shapes of the canyon.
It's a combination of both. You can be at an amazing location only to have boring conditions or have amazing conditions and not be on location. It was as overcast as can be when I arrived (three hours prior to sunset). Staked out my location and waited until something happened. Fortunately something did, but photography is like gambling. You win some and lose some.
