In the countless images I have made here this is the first time I have crawled out to this perch above the canyon to make an image. It is certainly not hard to get here but I often spend more time inside the gorge and forget to take advantage of the myriad other views. It is easy to get pulled into the short view with all of its details but sometimes getting up higher and taking the long view can achieve great results. There is probably a lesson in there somewhere.
TECHNICAL: Shot with a Sony a7RII and a Contax Zeiss 35-70mm CY MMJ at 70mm. Image exposed at ISO 100 at f11 for 1/2 of a second. To manage specular highlights and time I employed a Singh-Ray 105mm CPL.
