Does anyone have any suggestions for good locations (and when to shoot them)? I will be visiting the south rim tomorrow and will be there 2 days.

Thanks

Try and pick up the photographers guide. They offer lots of location and time advice geared towards the photographer.

Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

fantastic place for landscape however keepin mind, not pen nor brush nor picture can capture the GC. I loved the east rim, aka desert view. another great spot is south rim on far west end. accessible only by shuttle from Angle Bright. sunrise is 5:20 am and sunset about 7:30 p. morning and late evening are the only good times to shoot.

has anyone taken pictures from the helicopter tour? is it even worth trying?
i might opt for the helicopter tour that lands in the canyon so i can get 30 mins on the ground to take photos

I'll be surprised if they're flying when the light is any good. I'm sure the helicopter tour is a great experience, but if it happens in midday light, then it won't be a worthwhile investment just for the sake of taking photos.

Its been a while since I was there (2007) so I don't remember locations, sunrise was a great time when I was there, it rained/clouded over every evening I was there so I didn't get any sunset pics. Looking back at the pics now, I wish I had taken more during the day as the storms were rolling in. It made for some good pics.
