Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona, Day to Night™, 2015
This image is one from a series featured in the January issue of National Geographic to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service. My goal was to create a photograph that showed the majesty and vastness of the Grand Canyon incorporating a human narrative within the scene while presenting the beauty of the landscape. I photographed from the top of the Desert View Watchtower at the South Rim, where my team and I worked for 27 hours; during the day I was flanked by tourists who were curious about my process. When the sun rose I captured one of the greatest cloud formations I have seen. I chose to shoot the Grand Canyon at the end of July, to catch a lightning storm, which I feel is an important aspect of this photograph.

ظهرت هذه الصورة ضمن سلسلة من الصور المنشورة في عدد يناير من مجلة ناشيونال
جيوغرافيك احتفالاً بمرور 100 عام على تأسيس المنتزه الوطني. لقد كان هدفي أن أبتكر صورة تجسد عظمة جراند كانيون ووسعه، مع دمج قصة بشرية في المشهد أثناء إبراز الجمال الطبيعي الأخاذ. فالتقطتُ الصورة من قمة برج مراقبة ديزيرت فيو على الجهة الجنوبية، حيث عملتُ وفريقي لمدة 27 ساعة. أحاط بي خلال النهار سياح انتابهم الفضول إزاء ما أفعله. وعند شروق الشمس، التقطتُ صورة لأروع تشكيل سحابي رأيته في حياتي. اخترتُ تصوير جراند كانيون في أواخر شهر يوليو لالتقاط عاصفة رعدية هي برأيي من أهم العناصر في هذه الصورة.
