Although they're a pretty rare phenomena cloud inversions happen often enough so that every now and then a photographer of videographer will capture one on camera, often with spectacular results. Caused by colder air becoming trapped close to the ground below warmer air during the winter time clouds become trapped within valleys and mountainous landscapes and in this case, the Grand Canyon.

Filmmaker Harun Mehmedinovic recently recorded an inversion at the Canyon as part of a crowdfunded project SKYGLOW that aims to explore the effects of light pollution.
