The most impressive aspect of North Rim Grand Canyon is the depth and immensity of the canyon. I never thought I could capture either of those qualities in photos, but I was still going to try.

This shot looking over the edge of the canyon made me a little queasy and is probably as close as I am ever going to get to conveying just how steep these cliffs are, at least until I get to the south side of the canyon.


This shot of the Colorado River nearly indistinguishable as it runs through the canyon suggests how vast the canyon is,


but this medium shot of this massive rock


and this long-shot of the same rock formation


gives an even better impression of just how vast the canyon truly is.
