Photo Details

  • Title: Canyon Double Stike
  • State/Province/Region (required): Arizona
  • Country (required): United States
  • Nearest Area: South Rim Grand Canyon
  • Nearest Town: Tusayan
  • Description: I waited most of the day while thunderstorms built around the canyon. It wasn't until after night fell, the one thunderstorm finally let loose with it's lightning. I wanted to get some detail in the canyon but because it was already night time without any moon the canyon was dark. I ended up using an iso of 4000 with a long shutter speed. But with these settings the lightning and lit up sky was becoming over exposed. I never used a graduated ND filter at night before, but with it I was able to tone down the sky and lightning to give me detail in the canyon. If the lightning came earlier around sunset, I would have not needed a grad ND filter, but then I wouldn't have had the stars.
  • Brief Directions: Taken from Yaki Point
  • Best Season: Summer
  • Gear: Canyon 5d Mk2, 24-105L lens
