Beautiful work. The lighting is just magic. I especially like the first shot. I think with the second one you brought a bit too much shadow detail in the bottom right corner out in your processing. Great set!

Simply stunning. One of the best I've ever seen of the GC.

Dave I will be driving across the country and stopping at the Grand Canyon. Any suggestions on locations for morning and or evening locations to shoot from.

Hey, Thanks for the new comments. I appreciate the encouragement.
I may need more info to fully answer, but I can assume, since you are driving across the country, you will be stopping along the South Rim. I have more experience traveling to the North Rim, though. If you have the time, I would recommend the North Rim. There are far less people and better views IMO. My favorite point accessible by paved road is Cape Royal/Angel's Window views at sunset, which is where these photos were taken. I recently had good luck at Desert View shooting into the sunset and using HDR. Desert View is on the east end of the South Rim Drive. If your vehicle can travel off road try making it out to Point Sublime (lives up to the name) or Toroweap (my favorite view in all of AZ). Both are on the north side.
Maybe others with experience at the GC can chime in? Or you could pose the question in the Location, Location, Location! section. I'd be glad to help with more specific questions.
This is from Desert View just after sunset.
