Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Platform to the Winter Canyon” by David Shield. Location: South Rim, Grand Canyon, Arizona.

“A large February snowstorm at the Grand Canyon inspired me to drive to the South Rim and attempt to capture an image of the canyon cloaked in snow,” explains Shield. “The sky was still gray when I arrived, but as I set up to shoot at this particular viewpoint, the clouds started to slowly clear, casting brief rays of light onto the Canyon below.”
