Sunset over the Grand Canyon

So here I was, sitting on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and taking one shot after another as the sun slowly slipped below the horizon. There were plenty of other people around and one of them walked up to me and asked in broken english if I had an extra battery for my camera. It appears that his had died and he was hoping I had one that was charged up so he could get some shots of he and his girlfriend with the setting sun and Grand Canyon in the background. I pulled the extra battery out of my battery grip and handed it to him so that he could get his shots. After the light faded away, he returned my battery and thanked me for letting him use it.


I have no idea where he might be from and I am certain that I will probably never see him again.
