Moonset over Maricopa Point
Taken from near Grandeur Point on our hike along the rim trail to Yavapai Point, this view is of the setting Moon just off of Maricopa Point on the south rim. The right end of Maricopa Point is in front of Powell Point that actually makes the sharp edge of the canyon below the Moon. Powell Point is where we ended up for the sunset later that day. This image was taken at 55mm focal length with an expsoure of 1/400 seconds at f/8, ISO 100 with a polarizer filter.
