The Grandest Show on Earth

I was extremely fortunate to be able to visit the Grand Canyon a few weeks ago. Standing in front of it, I was humbled. Humbled by the passage of time- rocks over a billion years – a billion! Some of the stars we see above us in the sky hadn’t been formed when these rocks were around. And stars are so old themselves.

I captured this image close to sunset (close to Yavapai point). They say that the canyon looks best close to sunrise and sunset- this is because the long shadows create an impressive play of light and dark and of constant movement and colours. Looking at this photograph you have to agree!
