June 30 2010


The image below shows the West, or back side of the wonderful El Tovar hotel at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon on a late spring afternoon.  A slight vertical crop, and a little shadow adjustment on the porch area was all that was necessary in my opinion.  Equipment used; Sony A900 with the Sony CZ 24-70mm F/2.8, @45mm, F/8, 1/200s, -0.70ev, ISO 200.

I like the interesting use of different building materials here, like the dimensional lumber above the cut logs on the main hotel, (noticeable at left side of image).  Also note the different stone on the chimney and porch stem wall.  Anyone see the Blackbird?  Check out the weird chimney cap.
