Visiting the Grand Canyon is always a highlight of any photo trip I take. Unfortunately, quite often, it's really hazy or there is just a plain "blue bird" sky. This visit was neither of those scenarios.
It was still midday when I arrived at the North Rim Visitor Center and went to capture Bright Angel Point. The wind was strong enough to easily blow my baseball cap away and I knew that would make it difficult to capture longer exposures due to wind shaking the camera.
By the time I made it to Cape Royal, a few clouds lingered and the wind had mercifully died down. Then, out of pure luck, the sun set at the perfect spot in the valley, lighting up the streaking clouds above and making for the best VAST photo from that entire trip.
Sometimes, just sometimes, it all works out.

VAST Prints are fine art photographic paper prints that arrive ready to be mounted and/or framed. They are created using the sharpest photographic printer in commercial use: a very rare specialty printer that formerly printed military surveillance imagery. Learn more
Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.
VAST Displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain a VAST Print sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden brace on the back causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style. Learn more
