Colorado River at Dusk
This is the Colorado River at Dusk. Taken in that special window of evening time where alpenglow colors of the sky interact with the hues of light along the ground. Cutting its way through the western landscape over millions of years, the Colorado River is iconic, synonymous with the historical natural heritage of the North American Continent. The river serpentinely twists and turns through the harsh canyons along the border of Arizona and Nevada.
These lands are harsh and difficult but stark as they may seem they present a wonderful tapestry of color and texture; beautiful reminders of the diversity of shapes, colors, and the natural creativity of our wondrous planet.
