Written for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai: Canyon.  I was so fortunate to visit the Grand Canyon many years ago.  One thing I had not anticipated: during mid-day, the view of the canyon is sort of “bland”. When the sun is directly overhead, the rocks lose their color.  The best canyon views and canyon photos seem to come in the morning and evening when the rocks give up their intense reds and purples.
