South Rim Sunrise. Grand Canyon National Park.

The grandest of all canyons. Grand Canyon National Park, 80 or so miles north of Flagstaff Arizona, offers brilliant opportunities and views along the south rim of the famed canyon.


Sunrise at the South Rim
It was quite a mission trying to find an area of the canyon that had not been hit by the snow storm. We found this view on the far west of the south rim several minutes before the snow began to fall

My lovely
This here, is my Lovely. She's my reason. No one better to take these trips with. We exchange ideas, perspectives, and motivations to enjoy every opportunity we get. She has a great eye for natural frames that i have since now overlooked.


Framing from the surrounding trees adds a different, if not more, perspective. It was just enough to spark different Exposures, which lead to better color tone overall.



Here we have two good examples of how simple framing can change the dynamic of a photo. It can add something as foundational as depth to a scene, or as imaginative as back stories and perspective.
          Now, im just getting started with looking out for frames in nature; i've known they've been there, but it wasnt until i was introduced to my wife's photography that i realized how much of the tale i wasn't telling.  I plan on absorbing as much as i can from her perspective.


This photo is the same scene as the photo above, without any framing. 

Below, is a shot i have grown more and more fond of. I was sitting looking over my photos and realized that it was the odd combination between subject and scene that i like. We have rain clouds over a canyon with snow, rocks, leafless branches and wild desert flora; set as a backdrop for a subject wearing high-heel boots, mini skirt, rabbit fur, and a pooch on a leash. I very much enjoy the question that this photo made me ask myself, "why was she there, and where is she going?"
