Stunning Light Show at the Grand Canyon

Grand Canyon lightning

In this amazing night-time scene, we are treated to a lightning show at the Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA. Grand Canyon is one of the best Natural wonders in the world and the lightning shows at it are just spectacular, It’s like the best show in the world by Nature itself.

The photograph was taken by Rolf Maeder of, who drove two hours to the canyon to try to get some sunset shots.

As Maeder explains:

“Sometimes an opportunity comes very unexpected. Last week, my friends Scott StulbergHolly Kehrt (both wonderful photographers) and I were driving from Sedona to the Grand Canyon to get some sunset shots. After a short time being there we noticed that we couldn’t get what we wanted because of the very hazy light. So we decided to return to Sedona, just shortly checking out some more viewpoints. On the Moran Point we noticed that far away a lightning storm was building up.

That was even more than we expected, so we started setting up our tripods and started to take pictures! This shot was taken 9pm with a Nikon D800, 24mm at f/8, ISO 400 and a 25 sec. exposure. – The long exposure made it possible to catch two lightning bolts with one shot! The foreground was light-painted with a flashlight by Scott.”
