SkyWatch Friday: Grand Canyon Sunset

The Grand Canyon at Sunset from Mather Point. June 15, 2011.

This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

Betsy and I were fortunate enough to see two sunsets at the Grand Canyon.  This sunset was captured from Mather Point near the Grand Canyon Visitor Center.  Pictures just can’t do the scene justice.
