I spent last week in the wilderness, backpacking through the inner depths of the Grand Canyon.

A small side trail led to “Ribbon Falls” from Bright Angel stream on the North Rim. So I went.

The place was a magical oasis in the hot and arid desert. I photographed for an hour and then left. I was not satisfied. I had to return.

Several days later with sore feet and eager to begin my 4000 foot climb out to civilization, I passed this side trail again and went in for a second look at the falls. The sun was different, and so was the mood. I “felt” the place much better this time and “let the picture take me” this time.

I like the result.
