Grand Canyon Afterglow named Photograph of the Day

Pink afterglow at dusk. Landscape photograph at Hopi Point, Grand Canyon, Arizona. Hopi Point, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona (5) 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/970 mm0.6sISO 200
