Grand Canyon

Whenever I am taking photographs of famous or well known places, I try to present it in a different way. In this case, I composed the shot with the twisted and leafless branches in dark shadows and placed the canyon in the background slightly out of focus.
My idea was to break up the view of the canyon so that the eye focuses on the details and the differing darknesses of the shadows. At the very least it's not a typical Grand Canyon shot.

Mission accomplished on this picture. The Grand Canyon photos I've seen like to focus on the depth of it, but this picture does a great job of showing how long the canyon is. Beautiful lighting effects, too. Great job, as always!
