Grand Canyon Light Show

Everything about these pictures was a surprise.
It was literally hitting me like lightning,
showing me that moments of significance cannot be planned or forseen.
They can only be received.

In collaboration with the Swiss Fin­eArt specialist Markus Zuber of Fin­eArt­Pix , I re-edited the Grand Canyon Light Show and prepared it for FineArt printing. The results are simply stunning!

The Grand Canyon Light Show photo was captured at night on August 30th 2013 by Rolf Maeder at the South Rim of the “Grand Canyon”, Ari­zona, USA. An exposure time of 25 seconds made it possible to unite 3 lightning bolts in one picture. No elements of this photo were added or removed. The dramatic cloud formations, the archaic structures and unique colors of the Grand Canyon, the balanced composition and subtle editing make it to a piece of art of extraordinary beauty and power.
