Sunset on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. As beautiful as this image is, in person, it was pure magic. The light came up slowly, the clouds rolled into the place, the sun sank below the horizon, the moment seemed to last forever.
There were about thirty people witnessing this moment, some of them sat silently, absorbing the beauty, the colors lighting up their rapt faces with soft orange light, they seemed hypnotized majesty of the moment. Others wandered over to the other side of the ledge, watching the moon appear on the horizon in the opposite direction. The ledge where we stood, four photographers capturing all the light in the sky and a little bit more than anyone else could see, was below everyone else, the drop off of the side of the cliff was steep, but the ground was steady. We were ecstatic, completely lost in the moment. This was my fourth trip to this same location. And this is why you keep going back until you witness a sky like this.
