The Grand Canyon is a telephoto lens to compress the foreground and background. You can readily see the beauty in the canyon as the sun begins to set and the shadows take over. Whether a photographer or not this is the time to be there.
Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
In photographing the Grand Canyon shadows make the difference. They give the canyon definition and really bring out the structure. This is a "Story Telling Image". As with any story it has a beginning, the tree, a middle, the mountains, and an end,the North Rim way off in the distance. All are in focus front to back.
One way to accomplish this is with a wide angle lens, F/22 and manually focus on the tree which is about 6 feet in front of you. To get more information of this and other great ideas check out Bryan Peterson's book Understanding Exposure.
