On the Edge

I was overlooking the Grand Canyon thinking of just how big and vast it was, when I looked across the way and saw this man. The contrast in size of this one man compared to the whole canyon was striking and I had to photograph it. This moment put everything into perspective for me. We are all just tiny humans living in this big, beautiful world.
