FIrst Light over the Canyon

Yaki Point (give or take a mile) with the sun breaking the rim. This is a really tough shot to put together. This was 3 shots blended by hand very carefully in PSCS3. NO HDR.

 

This was from the last morning before leaving for home. I hiked about a mile out from where the other guys set up their cameras in the dark because I really really really wanted to see the sun come up and not be blocked by one of the buttes. I think the effort was worth it.

 

Thank you for looking !!
