Grand Canyon: Lipan Point at day's end

Sunsets at the Grand Canyon induce the stillness I mentioned in yesterday's post: there were about thirty other people at Lipan Point this evening, and it was amazing to hear the idle chatter die down as people simply watched the colors change: the orange strata of the canyon became firey as the sun hit them, and then everything was bathed in gentle lavenders and mauves as the sun sank below the horizon.

I took approximately 170 photographs today, but for some reason I'm particularly fond of this one, which best captures the loveliness of the canyon at the end of the day.
