Tourists of Mather Point

This shot is from Mather Point of the South Rim. When I first arrived at the Grand Canyon this time around, I only had a few hours. I started off with my wide lens, the Canon 16-35mm f2.8L II and tried to get some nice landscape shots while there were still clouds in the sky and before the sun set. When I felt I'd shot all I could from the Mather Point area I switched to my long lens. The Canon 70-200mm f2.8L IS II. And my results were something that I didn't expect. The long end of the lens really compressed the scene, and when you shot people the true scale of the Grand Canyon started to shine. 

These kind of shots I almost never see. Most people usually just go for very pretty landscape shots, so it was a nice to be able to capture a different take on Grand Canyon photography.
