I have the chance to live relatively close (4 hour drive) from one of the Wonders of the World, the Grand Canyon.
No matter how many times I have seen it, I am always in awe. There is always something new to see because it is so massive and the light traveling through the Canyon creates different shapes and shadows that make each experience unique.
For this quick trip, I found a more remote area away from regular tourist view points, I set up my camera on a tripod, and waited patiently for the sun to set. It had been overcast most of the day so I was worried the light would not be best for a great photo, but I still decided to wait. After about 1 hour and a half, the sun started to set in the horizon and right under the clouds. This created a perfect setting because the sunlight reflected on the clouds which illuminated the Canyon with a variation of colors from pink to purple, orange and brown...
Below are photos of my camera set-up on the edge of the Canyon waiting several hours the for the right light and the result in Fine Art photos when the sun started to disappear on the horizon.
