I was there a few years ago, your picture is stunning. However no matter how good the photo is they don’t do it any justice. You need to see it I person to truly appreciate the size, depth, and beauty.

I went there last year on a work trip to Vegas, on hearing us going I thought “wow a big hole” but when I got there it flipped my perspective on it. It really is something you need to see in person to fully take in the scale of what you’re looking at. Insane

Looking at the sky I'm guessing you got here earlier but the setting sun cast horrible shadows so you had to wait until sunset even if that was your plan.

Its crazy how bad it looks before the sun sets.

Plan was to wait out and see what color palette the minutes after sunset had to offer :) I agree, but before sunset you could beautifully photograph the slightly sun-touched rims on the rock formations

When I was there the sun just washed out all the harsh shadows. Its was terrible. I had to tell my family just to wait and when the sun slipped below the horizon it was a magical frantic moment as I was shooting digital and slide film at the same time.

Where is this photo taken? Going there in a while.

By the angle of the view of Plateau Point I think it might be from the Yavapai Geology Museum on the south rim, or even further west towards Mather point.

I have visited these place a few times, but I never ever can get a nice photo of it. Bravo to you. Great shot.

Went to the Grand canyon just before covid. Pictures do not do it justice when you see it in person. It's truly breathtaking. One of the few places I would go back to in a heartbeat.

I was at the North rim this past fall. Such a beautiful place!! Thanks for posting the picture

I still attest, to this day, everyone should see it in-person. It's quite the sight.

Which part was this taken? I was just there in January but couldn’t find a higher point, I presume there are different trails with better viewpoints?


Philanthroph OP t1_jcc01vv wrote

I took it a few hundred meters west of Mather Point. The spot is not ideally exposed as there is just too much vegetation and rocks beneath the edge.

Very nice, I was at Grand Canyon Village. Absolutely stunning view..

Thanks. Both high enough resolution and landscape. I can add this to my wallpaper collection.

What a beautiful shot. It doesn't even look real

Terrific shot! It immediately brought up in me times I've seen sunrise over the Grand, that vast silence...

When I went, I swear it looked like a hologram. I’m still blown away by it.
