I wish I could say I planned this shot, but I was actually on my way to Plateau Point with another view in mind at the time. We departed the South Rim around 3 int he morning, and as dawn approached I could see the waning moon trying to sneak below the horizon of the south rim. This forced me to increase my pace. Then, just as the first rays of dawn hit the south rim I was able to make this exposure that encompasses battleship rock, the moon, and three distincly different layers of strata as I looked up toward the south rim of the Grand Canyon. NOTE: I slightly increased contrast on this photo, but otherwise no major edits were made.
