Riding the Hermit Road shuttle bus on our way to Hermit’s Rest, Powell Point is our first jump-off. There is a nice family from Texas enjoying the view when we arrive – they are much further out on the point of Powell Point than I can manage. By the time I get set up to shoot, the Texas family has moved on and we had the place to ourselves. I am running out of new adjectives to describe the view of Grand Canyon. I’ve settled on just saying “wow.”
Grand Canyon is spectacular, but certain outcroppings do not agree with my brain. This is one of them. I opt for a panorama location well back from the tip of the point because I’m having trouble focusing my eyes close-up with so much “out there” in the distance, especially straight down. As I walk in a circle to stay behind the pano rig, my peripheral vision is shrieking at me that it’s a long way down. I’m not even close to the edge of the canyon, but this is really hard.
One famous person is immortalized in this shot.
