Makes me think there must be some fine air-drafts over the Grand Crack, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: There must be... we see ravens, hawks, vultures and condors "riding the thermals" at the Canyon!
Grand drama, Elizabeth,I love seeing the big birds having fun over the canyon.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Frank! Great fun for us watching them, isn't it!

Those birds add to the drama of this picture, Elizabeth. It is not often that we see a view like that. Love it.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They do, indeed! Thank you, Astrid - I loved that day in the fog and the clouds and the snow!
Totally my kind of sky and day, Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Yes - You'd have just loved it, Ginnie!

Probably enjoying some thermals whilst swooping through the clouds.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: No doubt! I'd love to be them!

What a wide space for the flying ravens!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They must love it!
They are a long way from the tower of London E
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh yes they are!

I love this picture with the varied sky, the drama and those little birds against the whiter elements.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Chad! I got really lucky to spot them in that sky!
i imagine they are just lazily soaring up there with very little effort, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'm sure you're right, Ayush! Lucky birds!
Your reply to Ray suggests a great variety of impressive birds can be seen riding these thermals.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - it's always wonderful to see. There are many birds at the Canyon... but these float and soar with such ease!
The birds are perfect in adding life to the beautiful scenes you have been showing this week,
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Mary! They did add the final touch, somehow!

A beautiful dramatic sky that looks like it's falling into a huge abyss!! It makes the ravens stand out nicely.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was such an amazing day, Steven! Well, any day at the canyon is amazing - but the sky made it that much more! Thank you!
A very moody scene!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - not my usual - but I liked it!
Ambiance très sombre !
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: The clouds were ever changing that day!

Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Sherri! I got lucky with the ravens... smile
Did you miss the Canyon? smile I wonder what those birds are in flight.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It would be hard to... Those are our very large Ravens! Wonderful birds!
Big sheets of rain...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: And snow.... smile
