    Photograph taken on a Nikon D700 in 2009, late afternoon light at the Desert View Point on the south rim of the Grand Canyon.  Having only just arrived at this view point a storm came in very swiftly, bringing a dark curtain of rain in its wake.  The combination of sunlight slanting in from the left and drawing out the textures in the rock, and the rain rolling in from the north and throwing the background into soft shadow, created an entrancing quality of light which quite filled the canyon and sky with lucent colours.  This light lasted mere minutes and so the photo had to be a ‘grabshot’; no time to think, no tripod, no preparation.  This is what photography is all about; capturing these rare plays of light before they pass.  Sometimes a ‘grabshot’ can record those moments when a beautiful landscape is transformed into something so much more than itself.
