Aside from two foreign women who left well before sunset, Marc and I had the area to ourselves. We'd both done a bit of shooting at top and bottom of the falls then got ourselves set up for what we hoped would be a nice sunset. We were very lucky here, as the temps stayed warm and the mosquitoes stayed away from the mist of the falls.

The clouds moved in and from our vantage point we couldn't see what the sunset would provide to the west. We sat and waited or played with the dogs as darkness overcame the canyon. Then it began. First a faint glow of yellow, then pink and oranges melting into deeper purple and hot pink before the last of the light faded. It was beautiful.

Thanks so much for stopping by and your continued support is greatly appreciated.
