The clouds are working with you, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They sure were!
A Grand view, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: 'tis, 'tis!
That is absolutely lovely with the great light and clouds.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Michael! And thank you for your visit!

i notice the clouds just lie on top of the mountaintops

once again, it's really a great composition
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: The Grand Canyon is pretty amazing- because it's 6000 feet deep, it creates it's own weather. It can be 40 - 50 degrees warmer down on the river, than it is up on the rims... so this will keep the clouds lifted up on the rims where the air pressure spreads the clouds- and they seem to hang on the edge. A wonderous thing. We keep trying to catch a cloud inversion... but Frank did capture a "fog pourover" once - which is pretty cool:

"Teensy", Elizabeth??
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Well... yes! smile It's hard to imagine, I know. The portion in this shot is but a mere fraction, less than a twentieth I'd think. At any one view point you can never see more than a fifth of the canyon. It's difficult to comprehend. This is near Grand Canyon Village - from here the canyon continues for another 25 miles or more to the west, and we can drive (or hike) 25 miles east, stopping at various view points... before dropping down 3,000 feet on the slope toward the Painted Desert.

It seems you can’t keep the sun away for too long in this place.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh no. We've only been a few times that the sun didn't shine at least a little.
Teensy as it is probably the size of Worcestershire grin
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I had to look it up.... Worcestershire is 672 sq miles. The Grand Canyon is 1,902 sq miles. There ya go! smile

Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Of course - you may have been asking about this teensy section - so I've no idea. smile

I love the mist (not fog, sorry)!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Well - technically the difference between fog and mist is visibility - in which case - fog would actually be more accurate here, but it didn't make as good of a title!

So hard to get a feeling of the enormity of the Canyon and its grandeur in 2D. I like this view showing the clouds just below the rim.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is. But I'll keep trying! smile
Thank you, Alan!!
The clouds add an extra dimension to the canyon. Awesomeness!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They do! We always grumble when there's just a blue sky! But then stare, and breathe and become enraptured none the less!
A very bad helicopter crash there was in the news over here - Brit holidaymakers on board.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - very sad.
i like seeing mountains in the clouds Elizabeth... good image....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I do too, Peter! Always makes me think of the line in the song "3x5"... "And strange, how clouds that look like mountains in the sky, are next to mountains anyway..."
Thank you, Peter!
It is, as it name says, Grand, I can't imagine anything over a mile deep.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: One does run out of superlatives!
It is, as it name says, Grand, I can't imagine anything over a mile deep.
Truly spectacular and impressive these places, they seem to belong to another world, they leave you breathless
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'd love for you to see it, Claudio!
