Sunset over the Grand Canyon

Photography is about light. In the early morning and towards evening the light changes as the atmosphere absorbs more and more of the yellow sunlight and appears to be redish or orange. The red sunlight of the evening brings out the redish hue of the rocks and highlights the white and yellow limestone cap of rocks on the North Rim. Understanding the physics of how the light changes enhances the experience.
