Looking back over the past week, my GC Field Institute class can treasure some amazing times together. The rainbow was a good omen to start our Summer Monsoon photography workshop. Sunset at Desert View gave us some golden moments, and even some interesting blue hour shots of the Watchtower. Way to pull off a game-ending winner there Mark!
Tuesday was a day of fine-tuning new skills with morning light at Yaki Point and a great golden hour at Powell Point. Enjoyed seeing Mona and Anne up high capturing the beauty from the memorial turret!
My favorite day for shooting had to be Wednesday! That candy-colored sunrise at Navajo Point was sensational. It was truly awe inspiring to watch the rain curtains on the horizon transition through shades of pinks and gentle violets. Lester was a good sport as he took in the 360-degree beauty without the need for an image capturing device like all those other mere mortal’s. And there was the well-traveled platypus getting his mug shot on the rim with Mark and Amanda. Very cute! Jack showed up, and although he forgot the donuts we were nice to him anyway.
On the very same day we enjoyed the dramatic end-of-the-day views from Shoshone Point. Thanks to Mike for opening the gate and showing us the way. The ever-changing light was mesmerizing that afternoon. Seems everyone got some great shots! And just to be different, Kylie found that magical golden forest photo. No unicorns, but a magical scene for sure!
Finally on the last morning at Pima Point we could have used a few clouds—we were spoiled by that point! But a short trip over to Hermit’s Rest for coffee kinda sorta made up for it… I hope. Jim now knows about Mary Colter’s secret hideaway. How long it remains a secret we’ll have to wait and see!
So there you have it…. a week we can all treasure! New discoveries, new friends, and new photographs of one of the Seven Wonders of the World!
