|Sunrise in the Grand Canyon|
We have all seen those grand vistas of our better known national parks or monuments, so behind your photo opportunities is always that thought of coming up with something unique. You begin with choosing your time and place like dawn at the Grand Canyon. Digital is cheap compared with film so you snap and snap and snap.
There is no dropping off the film at Kodak these days. We are not merely the photographer but the developer and editor. I go through my photos several times and am learning to delete mercilessly. I try to keep in mind the old film rule that one great photo in a roll of 36 is exceptional. Download 225 images and there have to be a lot not worth taking up hard drive space. And then there are those worth fiddling with in your photo editing program. A much smaller number.

No doubt my favorites may change over the next week or two but my raven will always be in that group.
