Royal Rainbow by PeterJCoskun Royal Rainbow by PeterJCoskun
I spent labor day weekend up on the north rim of the grand canyon with a few fellow photographers and got to experience some of the views that are off the beaten path. For the most part, we had the park to ourselves with a few others poking in to the view points. I had the chance to camp along the rim (something I've always wanted to do) and meet some new people. This area is not off the beaten path, in fact, many of you have probably seen images from this location, but for me the real view was inside the canyon. We started our morning at 3am loading up our gear from our first campsite and headed an hour and a half to point imperial hoping for a good sunrise. We got there about an hour before hand and just waited out the light. We didn't get any dramatic light, but some nice skies and views. After about an hour and a half of shooting at this point we headed to cape royal. These were the only two points we reached via paved road. When we arrived it had began raining so we sat in the car for a few minutes as the rain began to lighten up a bit. With the sun already in the sky, I wasn't really expecting anything dramatic. With the on and off rain it was hit or miss or get everything wet. Once the rain finally let up this rainbow appeared from inside the canyon and some soft filtered light painted the canyon floor. This was really the first time I ever got a rainbow on camera that I liked. With a few shots taken, we headed some 22 miles on rough borderline 4x4 roads to our final point and had quite the light show at sunset. It was a grand experience for my first visit to the north rim and surely will not be my last.
