Sunset shadows, tones, and sky at the incredibly impressive and awe-inspiring natural wonder. Having taken this shot during our first visit to the canyon, I recall the number of times I would just stop, stand, and stare at the unbelievable majesty that is the product of the combined effects of the power of God and nature. As much as I can do to understand the ways that physics, geology, time, and weather conspired (and continue to conspire) to create this awesome site, I always wonder if the hands of God use those very forces the way any great artist uses brushes, canvas, paint, stone, or chisels to create everlasting works of beauty.
