Desert View Watchtower, Grand Canyon National Park

I arrived at the Desert View Watchtower in Grand Canyon National Park just in time to get into the tower and see the view from the top. The sun was pretty low in the West so it was difficult to see much of the canyon. On my way back to my car, I went tried to capture some landscapes including the tower. This was one of my favorites. If I had to do it over again, I would have chosen a more narrow aperture to get the tower in focus as well as the tree. I also might have grabbed some additional shots to be able to clone out the people, but that's what second trips are for.


This photo was created from a single RAW image processed in Adobe Lightroom. Adjustments include lens correction, exposure, and white balance.
