I was deep in this canyon for most of the day but I could see the wispy clouds hanging high in the atmosphere, I was trying to think of a shot where I could capitalize on the color of the clouds even down in the canyon. A friend of mine had taken a shot here during mid-day on his trip into the canyon a year prior and earlier in the day I noticed how the light was hitting under this enormous cliff. I came back to the spot at sunset, and right on cue the sky lit up, illuminating the underside of this staggering cliff with soft light providing the unique conditions for the image I was hoping for.
