Late Afternoon at the Grand Canyon

Pictures of the Grand Canyon sometimes look strange because the tops of all the rocks just end in an almost flat line. The Colorado Plateau is level and the Canyon is cut down from the level surface of the Rim or Plateau which lies at about 8000 feet. The best time to take photos in in the evening or early morning when the colors are most vibrant and the light is at an angle making shadows that show the highlights of the cliffs.

  1. That is a great photo. Visiting the Grand Canyon is on my list. Since I hate to fly, I suppose I will drive. I realize it is an unreasonable fear, and I have flown to Asia and Europe, it is still a fear none the less.
