I was going through some old folders as I typcially do looking for past images which I might want to reprocess or even attempt to reshoot in the near future. This was from the very first time I photographed a sunset along the grand canyons rim. I had been here numerous times before with family, but this happened to be an unplanned trip. A friend and I were in Moab wandering around arches and canyonlands national parks and got fed up with the windy and dusty conditions, so we left a day early and headed back into Arizona. I figured since we both still had a day to spend, we would go to the grand canyon and hopefully enjoy a nice sunset. It was still just as windy as it was in Moab, but there was a gap on the horizon leaving the possibility of a nice sunset. After sitting and watching the light and the canyon for an hour or so, these nice light rays began to make their way into the canyon. It ended up being a beautiful sunset and I still remember that evening pretty well. As much as I enjoy this image from a few years ago, it makes me want to try and recreate this scene or something better (or just give me a good excuse to spend some time up here). Perhaps in the next few weeks I will get that chance, but for now, this image will do.
