photoblog image The Shallow End

The Shallow End

 

The far Eastern edge of the Grand Canyon

 

Just out of frame on the right is where the Little Colorado River joins the Grand Canyon.   Above the Palisades here is, once again, the Marble Platform stretching out to Shinumu Temple and the Echo Cliffs in the distance.  The split in the middle is where the Colorado River comes through, and Lees Ferry is "Mile 0" of the Grand Canyon for the river people.  On the left of the image are the Vermillion Cliffs of the Paria Plateau, which we've explored and shown many times.  Somewhere below the sunlit patches of the Vermillion Cliffs is where we like to stay and we'll have our breakfast looking out the opposite direction - toward where we stood for this image!

 

 

We're off on vacation for the rest of the week.  We'll have wifi at the hotel, but may be short on time.  Will try to get on ShutterChance in the evenings!

What a marvelous landscape to have in your backyard to capture so many views, all beautiful in their own right! I never knew there was a "shallow" end.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh, truly! It never ceases to amazing me... Yes - this end is not quite as deep smile

You have lit this Wonderland beautifully, Elizabeth.

Both this picture and yesterdays picture are so beautiful. I think every time you visit the Grand Canyon you are short of eyes. Enjoy your trip and don't worry about the Wifi wink..
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Astrid - I appreciate you looking back, as well!
I'm forever awed by this place... Every. Single. Time.
We're enjoying ourselves very much!

Terrific stuff. Hope your holiday is nice, where are you heading for?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, so much, Chris! We're having a grand time in Santa Fe, New Mexico! I couldn't say before - because it was a surprise for Frank!

I’m as interested in the land above as well as in the canyon. Have a great time.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh, me too! It's an incredible landscape. The Colorado Plateau is so huge, and flat.... then above it, is the Paria Plateau - which then gives way further north to the Grand Staircase.
I like that we can see through the shadows here. have a good vacay!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Mary - got lucky with that!
We're enjoying Santa Fe very much - can't believe it's been 5 years since we've been here.
Another great picture, I'm getting quite transfixed by the canyon and I live thousands of miles away from it. Enjoy your break, no doubt you feel like a few days off, I can just about remember what it was like working full time.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'm so glad... it's a place that is so awe inspiring, and other worldly... I wish you could visit!.
We're having a great time in Santa Fe - love this place... the culture, the people, the hundreds of galleries! The food... Can't believe it's been 5 years since we were here last. But any break from work... smile

the inclusion of the water gives an entirely different perspective of the vastness
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Sherri - seeing the Colorado River down there does make a difference!

The lighting is special in this picture. Good that you also can show detail in the shadows.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Louis - yes, I was pleased with the shadows - got lucky! smile
Enjoy your trip!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: We're very happy here in Santa Fe!
What a phenomenal landscape! smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Other worldly, isn't it!
