To view the beams of light coming down into the canyon, this is best from the months of mid-March through mid-September. Hence our Photo Tour departing at 11:30 AM to see the shafts of light for the first hour (weather permitting). The second hour of our Photo Tour is a great time to capture the colors, more vibrant red, blues and purples. Other months in the year are still Great to photograph the canyon for the colors and the experience.
November 1st to February 28th/29th: Winter months our Photographic tour departs at 9:30 AM. During these months the shaft of lights do not occur as the sun is traveling more over the southern hemisphere. Colors during these months are more pastel (pinks, yellow, peach and orange). We have the 11:30 AM Photo Tours available for special groups only - but we Highly suggest 9:30 AM for better colors/glow. Great time for the Abstract and black and white photography too, especially on a cloudy day.
