Saturday, November 30, 2013 was a once in a 10 year experience for a Photo Tour Global Directory™ event with a “total temperature inversion” at the Grand Canyon, according to the National Park Service in an article posted by The Atlantic. The entire Grand Canyon was FILLED with clouds and not a single cloud in the sky above the canyon. An incredible sight you are going to enjoy!
The National Weather Service explains temperature inversion as:”The warm air above cooler air acts like a lid, suppressing vertical mixing and trapping the cooler air at the surface.”
The Photo Tour Global Directory™ tour group going to the Grand Canyon to shoot the sunrise had no idea what a history making day this would be with a total cloud inversion. The warm air of the cloudless sky was trapping the fog in the entire canyon for a unique viewing experience. Being above the clouds was exhilarating as the sun filled the sky and the things became clear through the mist.
The photos tell the story best! We arrived at the blue hour
The best shots of the day were taken by a 15 year old young man on the tour who shares his photography under the name “Faceplant Photography.” He captured the essence of the total temperature inversion as the sun rose on Saturday, November 30, 2013. He also caught his dad reflecting on the majesty of the Grand Canyon and the wonder of it all!
The Business Insider had some great shots of this unique phenomenon as well.
