Grand Canyon River Rafting

I recently went on an amazing Grand Canyon river rafting trip, put together by guide Robby Pitagora. I went with a pretty light kit — Nikon D300, and three lenses: the Nikon 18-200, Sigma 10-20, and Nikon 50 1.4. It definitely would not have been worth the hassle to bring (and constantly change) the bigger professional lenses, and honestly I don’t think the photos would really have turned out noticeably better.

Here are a handful of my favorite images. The full set can be found on my Facebook fan page.
