Grand Canyon Sunset

It was our one day to observe a sunset over the Grand Canyon -- and were we fortunate. Conditions lined up perfectly, a canopy of reflective clouds, colors that began orangish and progressed to purplish in a matter of minutes. If only the photograph could capture the heavenly feeling of being there.
