Tuesday, day 4 , our last day of our trip to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.


Yavapai Point

Well, we got started before sunrise again! We decided to take a short drive to Yavapai Point for the sunrise. Below is a photo from Yavapai Point, just as the sun rises over Vishnu Temple (photo info: 50mm, 1/10 sec, f/22, ISO 200).  A small aperture (f/22) was used to create the starburst effect. The Yavapai Museum of Geology is also located at Yavapai Point.

This is another photo captured near Yavapai Point with the North Rim in the distance (photo info: 11mm, 1/4 sec, f/22, ISO 200). The HDR image was created from 3 bracketed exposures.

While walking back to the parking lot was asked “Where do you think you are going?” (photo info: 500mm, 1/2000 sec, f/8, ISO 800).

Mather Campground

Well, after returning from our short sunrise trip to Yavapai Point, it was time to make breakfast one last time before packing everything up. Packing up camp has to be our least favorite part of camping, but we are getting better at it!  The spider below was spotted while packing,  which allowed me to use the macro lens (photo info: 90mm, 1/50 sec, f/11, ISO 200).

Exiting The Grand Canyon

While driving toward the South Entrance Station exit saw a few Mule Deer. Below is one of the fawns trying to avoid our camera (photo info: 500mm, 1/200 sec, f/8, ISO 200).

Just south of the South Entrance Station is the Grand Canyon sign seen below with my personal model (photo info: 28mm, 1/250 sec, f/8, ISO 200).

Well, all good things must come to a end, and this is the end of our post for day four, and the end of our photo trip to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Adios!
