Desert View Overlook, Grand Canyon NP, USA • By Mike Lewis
I had a single afternoon at the Grand Canyon as part of a longer trip, and was visiting with someone who had never been to the park before, which always makes it fun, as seeing someone's face when they first stand at the edge of the canyon is priceless! We entered the park from the less common east side of the south rim, at Desert View. We went to the overlook which was very crowded. I contemplated trying to set up my tripod for about a second, but realized that might not be a popular decision, with folks pressing in behind me as I stood at the railing. So I braced my camera on the railing and took 4 overlapping bracketed frames to try to capture the high dynamic range expansive view of the canyon and the foreground. I was amazed to see how well they combined and stitched together to reproduce the scene as I remembered it.
