On this occasion, after intensely studying all the weather reports and radar, everything pointed to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Near sunset the lightning moved on through at a far distance but electricity was certainly in the air! Every time I touched my tripod (even repetitively) it would strongly shock me. In these situations I usually take critical cover and let the camera take the risk and go to work in continuous mode (catching about 3/4ths of the strikes). This year I will try out my new lightning trigger. If you have not heard the deafening crack of roaring thunder reverberating through the depths of the Grand Canyon, you may want to. It is something so awesome you likely will not forget it the rest of your life!
If you are interested in chasing wild Southwest light with me this year, I only have a few more spots open on 2 tours. This year is my most ambitious workshop year to date and I am leading over 15 workshops from the Pacific Northwest, to Patagonia, to the Great SW and beyond. Only 4 of the 15 tours still have a few openings. If you are interested simply email me for a free PDF @ MarkMetternich@gmail.com
Feel free to follow me on FACEBOOK if you so choose.
Thank you for looking and as always GREAT Light to you! 🙂 mmm…la comida de mexico es excelente
