Photo's by Roger Zellmer at the Grand Canyon June, 2011

Morning sun taken near the El Tovar hotel before breakfast.
Indian Wells on the Bright Angel trail.
Early sunrise about 5:40 am taken at Mather Pt. near the visitor center. The sun rises very early here in the summer.
Taken a few minutes later with back lite sun. I may have needed one more exposure to get the sun into exposure range,
Nice clouds in the sky on this fine clear evening 1 hour before sunset located near Hoppi Pt.
Some great shadows here.
The sun really lighting this rock up, about 15 minutes before sunset.
I loved the background canyon colors here.
About 5 minutes before sunset at Hoppi Pt. I took the bus north 1.5 hours before sunset from the village to be out here in time. What a site it was and probably 50 photographers here from all over the world. This is suppose to be the premier spot for sunsets in the Grand Canyon.
Here I am at the Grand Canyon South Rim star party setting up my AstroTract mount for the evening party. The party was held at a parking lot in the main visitor center. Convenience was good from Trailer village and I had a Great time. Will definitely consider this star party again.
The Milkyway looked awesome out here. Taken on my AstroTract with Canon 7d and 24-105mm Canon lens. The brisk wind prevented imagers from getting really crisp results.
