Photo of the Week: Grand Winter Sunrise

Grand Canyon

For many parks across the country, winter begins to come to a close in March. At Arizona’s Grand Canyon National Park, however, it is still winter, a season that brings a new perspective to the temples and buttes that emerge from the canyon and provides a unique backdrop for viewing the park’s flora and fauna. Visitors willing to brave winter conditions will have a quieter and less-congested park experience. “The area was surprisingly devoid of people,” writes photographer Steve Perry, who made this image last winter. ”I suppose it had something to do with the 18-degree temperatures and blustery wind.” The Ohio resident used a Nikon D800 with a 24mm lens.
