Horseshoe Bend Sunset
Living in Arizona for many years, I was able to witness numerous sunsets that blew me away. For the longest time, that stunning sunset eluded me while overlooking Horseshoe bend.
While on the way home to the Grand Canyon, I decided to pull off and give Horseshoe bend another try. It was an overcast day, and not much had changed by evening. As sunset grew closer, the crowd did as well, but many were disappointed as the sun set below the horizon without more than a small glow. With many people leaving, I decided to stick it out a little longer in true Grand Canyon fashion, and it paid off.
With the sun just below the horizon, it cut through the clouds and lit the near overcast sky from below, filling Horseshoe Bend and the Colorado River below with beautiful light.
