he Grand Canyon is always an amazing place, but especially so at both ends of the day. The ascending light of dawn and the receding light of twilight are magical times here. This photograph was captured just one minute after the sun rose above the eastern horizon. The bulk of the canyon is still buried in the earth's shadow and only lit by the dim skylight directly above. While the direct sun rays have crept down the South Rim a hundred feet or so, this same amount of lit canyon wall on the far rim a dozen miles away appears as a narrow bright streak on the horizon. The very edge of the rim at my feet is close at the bottom of the image.
