2018—Atmospheric Depth

I’ve always loved photographs of mountain ranges with row after row of silhouetted ridges and hills, the closer the ridge, the darker it is.  With distance, each gets lighter the further away it is.  Thursday evening at Desert View, the eastern most edge of the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, the haze created this phenomenon looking north across the canyon.  I’ve never known  the term for it and Moose told me it is called Atmospheric Depth.
