Yaki Point, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Everlasting Light

After waking up early on a cold April morning, I was somewhat disappointed to find that the dawn light at Yaki Point on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon was obscured by dense storm clouds on the horizon. However, one of the most important things I have learned is to never give up and […]





Ancient Glow, Antelope Canyon, Arizona

After arriving in Page, Arizona the previous evening and capturing the Horseshoe Bend, we awoke to the sound […]
