researching the favoured sites for sunset on the Grand Canyon North
Rim, we drove along the edge of the Walhalla Plateau to Cape Royal in
good time for sundown. Although the views from there were indeed
spectacular, the cloud came in and it started to rain, so we gave up
and started to head back. On the drive back the sky suddenly started to
glow, and on pulling into the
viewpoint at Vista Encantada we witnessed this spectacular storm over
the rim over Marble Canyon, on the other side of the Colarado river.
The ground below us glowed red - and there was even a red rainbow.
There wasn't time to set up my tripod, so I bracketted exposures
handheld. This image is a combination of several exposures in
Photomatix Pro and Lightroom, but it is difficult to do justice to the
magnificence of the lighting - which only lasted a short 10
minutes or so.|
