Take the South Rim Drive to Pima Point from Grand Canyon Village.
This image was taken during an Arizona Highways Photo Workshop lead by Peter Ensenberger.
We had a couple of clear days between snowstorms and were taking images as the sun set at Pima Point. There was a layer of clouds on the western horizon and the sun settled behind them about 30 minutes before official sunset. Since the sweet light had disappeared, we were discussing packing up but the professional at our workshop encouraged us to stay. We were rewarded with a burst of magical light as the sun peeked beneath the clouds just before setting.
