Grand Canyon Pastel Beauty

Daily Photo:  Check My Gallery for all posted photos!

As the Colorado River snakes through the Grand Canyon, I wait patiently for just the right moment to snap a shot of the fading light of dusk. This photo was taken a bit after sunset with the light of day nearly gone. I wanted a soft pastel glow to fall over the canyon, so I could use longer exposures, to create this effect. I took 3 exposures and processed this HDR photo.

Update: As I now leave the Canyonlands and Arches of Utah, stay tuned for photos of this incredible wonderland.
