Lipan Point at Sunrise, Grand Canyon   Leave a comment

Each photographer is influenced by his or her memory of the events surrounding a photograph.  Getting up before sunrise, searching for the canyon edge in the dark, watching that sunrise, wondering at the stunning quiet broken only by the crows calling to each other  — all are intricately woven into the photographer’s memory of an image.  Specific memories that the casual viewer can’t possibly share.  So although there are tens of thousands of Grand Canyon images on the web, this one is the one that evokes my memories of that morning.  That’s why it is special to me.  And although photographers like to have their photos complimented, I believe that most of us still do this first and foremost for ourselves.
