16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
The Grand Canyon at 6:00 AM
It was my first time ever visiting the Grand Canyon. I had heard so much about how the sunrises can change the colors of the canyon. I made sure to set up my alarm so I could see for myself. The view was truly spectacular. It was like watching a show: constantly changing, moving, and grabbing my attention. This photograph represents right before the sun lifts over the highest part of the canyon and allows light to shed beneath it.
