Caption

Grand Canyon National Park. Arizona-The Grand Canyon spreads out for seemingly edless miles, an ocean of color. Rising from its misty depths are gigantic islands of crimson sandstone, their undulating bands growing softer in color and a outline toward the horizons, where a single firm stroke seems to separate the rosy depth from the deep blue sky above.
