Before and After Grandeur at the Grand Canyon


Speaking of the Grand Canyon, I have often heard the canyon's colors can dramatically change over the course of just a few minutes. The two pictures I have posted here are scenes from the same general area at one of the last viewing points towards the exit of the park. We were at this particular spot for about 30-40 minutes - we didn't want to leave! I stood in awe as I watched this scene unfold before my eyes. You might be able to notice a hint of the blue color seeping into the frame of the upper left part of the top photo before most of the landscape made it's color change entirely to shades of blue as seen in the photo below. UTTER awesomness!

That's awesome (a word I don't use lightly)!

The Grand Canyon is one place I've always wanted to visit. I've seen smaller canyons, in TX, that were so alluring. I just can't imagine!!

Absolutely stunning! I've only seen the Grand Canyon once, many many years ago, and we often talk about visiting there. I should send my husband a link to your blog, because he's an avid photographer, and would appreciate these two pictures very much.

thanks Alexa! I had a feeling you would like this & I am glad you had the chance to stop by.
; )

I know what you mean KaHolly, I waited a VERY long time to finally fulfill my dream of visiting the Grand Canyon & it was everything I thought it would be.

Thanks VC.

Thank you Kay, you're so sweet!

The Grand Canyon is such a treat any time, any season. The same spot looks always different and unique.

that is really gorgeous. Worth the wait, I am sure.
I'm sad to say I've never been.
