Temples of Light by Pcoskun

This is an older image from perhaps my favorite trip to the south rim of the Grand Canyon. There was just something about this evening that provided me with some of the most memorable and dramatic light I could recall. Interestingly enough, there was never a crazy sunset that lit the entire sky. Just this very brief window where the ridges and temples towards the north rim of the canyon lit up in crimson hues. I remember posting an image of this moment back then (2013), but I totally forgot I had taken a series of frames that puts the sunlit sections in a nice arrangement. The low clouds slightly obscuring the left ridge and right temple leaving the brightest and most vibrant butte in the center. The varied hues of the canyon really added to the dreamlike atmosphere here. Almost the type of scene you might see in Lord of the rings or something like that. Anyways, with some new updated adjustments and going with more of my current style I decided to share this one. Also, since it is a winter scene (albeit kinda foreboding) I figured it would be a good time to say Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all of my followers! Thank you so much for your support over the years, it means a ton!
