Storm over Grand Canyon

My favorite time to photograph nature and people is during the "Golden Hour" (a.k.a. Magic Hour)–the time just before sunset or just after sunrise, when the light is softer and warmer in hue.

Watching the sun slowly and graciously move down towards the horizon and grace the earth with its warm glow, also warms up my insides and fills me up with feelings of happiness, peacefulness and gratitude. It's better than hours of meditation.

Imagine how happy and grateful I felt, both as a person and as a photographer, when I witnessed a localized sunset storm with lightnings and rainbow over the southern rim of the Grand Canyon, while enjoying a warm summer evening from the peaceful northern rim of the canyon. The experience of a lifetime.
