I went to the Grand Canyon a year ago during the wintertime. It was a good experience and provided me with many important photos in my growing portfolio. I flew to Phoenix and drove to the South Rim for a three day trip.
The picture above is one of my best that I have taken on this trip, and by far. I don’t post process using Photoshop unethically, and only use contrast, curves, and saturation filters, sometimes using luminosity masks. This truly showed the state of the scene when I was there. The gorgeous pink light hit on the grooves of the canyons.
The next image is of Grandview Point. Like the image above, I didn’t change the image significantly. I didn’t increase the contrast, but did apply filters. I toned the highlights into purple, and shadows into blue. This helped make sure that there was character to the scene.
My next shot is probably my best. The golden-pink light of the rising sun hit the peaks of the canyons, causing a glow that is epic. This was taken during sunrise, where there are.
This picture is of Yaki Point, where a bus is required for you to get here. It isn’t particularly compelling, but.
