BEHIND THE IMAGE
“There is nothing that will make you feel smaller than the sheer size of the Grand Canyon. I wanted to show the colours and just the sheer size of the canyon in the photograph. It was important that the details in the canyon be visible as well as the sky, and the sky didn’t disappoint whatsoever.” -Robert Lowdon
GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK ARIZONA
Grand Canyon National Park is located in Northern Arizona. This grand canyon art photograph was taken at the North Rim, which is forested and cooler than the canyon, and south rim area. The North Rim tends to get less visitors than the south, but both are truly magical to witness.
To say that the Grand Canyon is ‘majestic’ would be an understatement. The scenery itself can be overwhelming because of its beauty, the intricate rock formations and the sheer magnitude of the height of the rocks and the depth of the canyon itself. The rock formations can rise to a height of 2,500 meters above sea level and the canyon plunges to a depth of almost 2 kilometers in some areas. Towering rock formations contain layer after layer of multi-colored rock that can vary in color from red to caramel, grey, green, pink, brown, and violet. There is just so much to take in when you come to this highly photogenic site. It is very easy to understand why the Grand Canyon was considered to be a holy site by the Pueblo people.
The photograph Something Grand was taken at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon in the Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona. According to the National Park Service, the North Rim is a harder to get to, but well worth the trip. The North Rim is also forested and cooler than the canyon itself and the South Rim. This area tends to get fewer visitors than the south, but both are truly magical to witness.
The magnificence of the Grand Canyon is fully captured in Something Grand. The sunset is reflected in the overcast pink and blue colored sky and in the top summits of the rocky formations and canyon below. Looking at this piece of art, you feel as if you are actually standing on a precipice at the North Rim and looking down into the splendor of the Grand Canyon.
