Got to spend a couple of days at the grand canyon north rim before they close for the winter. Cool place with great hikes.   Not gonna go into great detail other than the fact that it lives up to the grand in its name. Truly spectacular! All photos shot with a7rii and fe24-105 except for the last shot which was shot on an iPhone X. RII ran out of batteries. Cold sapped them dry.

Hi Chris,

How recently were you there taking these? We crossed the Colorado in late September during our Utah trip at what looks like the same (or similar?) point - is that the Navajo Bridge in #3? These must have been more recent as we had temperatures above 90F the whole time so little chance of frost (unfortunately)!

They're a great series and live up to what I have long thought - the North Rim is a much better place to take images of the Grand Canyon from than the South; I think the light creates potentially more interesting viewpoints and patterns and this series supports that from my perspective.

I really like the bridge shot in #3 - clean, crisp and the backdrop of the Vermilion Cliffs is a wonderful canvass on which to hang this scene. #'s 4, 5 8 and 9 (what: no #6...? ) are just stunning and especially so #5 - that sun burst really makes this a special shot and I like the way you've managed to use the foreground cliff edge to your advantage to help the eye work its way round the rest of the image into the cliffs beyond where we have some wonderful textures and colours. For #8 I really like the layering effect you've managed to create and for #9 that is one rather brave individual - there are a rather large number of fatalities in the Canyon NP from falls off edges like this....

Finally, though not seemingly of the rest of the set, I do like the rather subdued and gentle look of #7 - muted colours and a feeling of calm throughout the shot.

A wonderful location and very finely captured - thanks for sharing this series with us!

Best regards, Neil.

What a wonderful set of images!

#5 is a cracker of a shot with the gully forming a natural leading line to the setting sun. The sun stars are awesome. Print it big and hang it!!

Hello Chris; Amazing photos

Looks like 3 Dyxumers were there at relatively the same time. Me and Neil were probably there on the same day!


I really admire you for being the devout photographer that you are. I'm pretty clear to the mighty lengths you go to get your captures and I do mean Captures. Very Ansel Adams like.
That starburst photo, I can only imagine what you had to do just to be in position for it, and even then how lucky you were. Looking at the clouds you were extremely close to being clouded over and no Sun.

I recall a Yosemite sunrise of yours from Glacier Point. I know exactly how difficult it was just to be in position for it, but also how rewarding it can be. You have to be very dedicated to the craft, much more than me. Usually I go after a shot and deal w whatever I'm faced with. A definite "Hat tip" to you

I have to quibble w Neil a bit: "the North Rim is a "much" better place to take images of the Grand Canyon from than the South" I have never been to the North Rim and I have never considered the Canyon as more than whole in the ground. But the Sunday that I was there and maybe Neil was also, "super sunshine high 90 degrees" I can't imagine anywhere on Earth being more spectacular than where I was at that time. Thats how amazing it was. I instantly got a much Deeper understanding for the place than I ever had. And I used to live there and have been there many times.

I wish your photos had a deeper color to them but maybe that's just the time you're there. They definitely have a winter tinge to them. I know a week after I was there it snowed. On your Starburst I would like slightly of a less green hue to the photo. Amazing vantage points from where you took the photos
Once again my hats off to you for your dedication and ability _________Joseph

What a wonderful and inspiring set, including the smartphone snap (amazing what these can do nowadays).
Beautifully composed and presented. Love them all. Thanks for sharing.
