Lightning Above the Grand Canyon

We took on the Grand Canyon in 2011 and I was obsessed with this dead tree:

As the sun was setting, we could see that there was a storm rolling in…

and you would think, that we would have said to ourselves…. “selves, you are standing on the highest point of a great precipice…..and there is no shelter in sight….perhaps we should get on the bus and return to the parking lot“.  But alas, we did not.  We just kept watching.

And then we ran.

Oh wait!  I forgot to tell you about the other photog!  While hanging out on the edge of the GC, we met Rustin!  So naturally, I photographed him 🙂  He is a portrait photographer based out of Austin Texas.  You can follow him by clicking HERE.
