South Rim Magic Hour

I arrived at the South Rim Yavapai overlook just after sunset. There was hardly a spot to be had along any point at the rim with all of the tourists. Within 5 minutes I was about the only person remaining. Little do people know that the 'magic' light happens AFTER sunset. In this case a thunderstorm moved slowly toward the Canyon, all the while popping bolts. I had the aperture open wide for this shot which blew out the lightning strikes. The more I look at the image the more I love it.
