My sincere thanks to all who cast a vote for this photo, named Capture My Arizona's Photograph of the Day. We were fortunate to capture this image with a Nikkor ED AF-S VR 1:2.8 G 70 - 200 mm zoom lens at Hopi Point - an overlook located on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon - during our recent four day Whirlwind Photography Trek to Northern Arizona and Utah. The soft pink sky color appeared just after a rather bland sunset as we were packing up our gear, lasting about 15 minutes before the canyon fell into grey darkness.
Nikon D300, f/9@ 70 mm, 0.6s, ISO 200
