Grand Canyon Sunrise


This photo was taken by Thomas Hitchings, an undergraduate student in the Government department. This photo was taken in 2005 in the Grand Canyon, US.

'This photo of the Grand Canyon was taken early in the morning as the sun rose, before we set off on a 12-mile hike into the Canyon itself. The path we followed is visible in the photo. I had been told that dawn is the best time to see the Canyon and I think this image shows why. In particular, the long shadows cast over the Canyon are particularly atmospheric.'
