Apollo and Venus as One

 

Apollo Temple and Venus Temple look so close from this angle, as to be one, emblazoned by the setting sun. 

Jupiter Temple rises behind them trying to catch the last light.

 

Looking to the North Rim from Lipan Point on the South Rim.

What fascinates me the most are they lines I see in the rocks and the colours, Elizabeth.
The shape of the rocks are always a wonder to me. What a place. And I think no minute here is the same.....
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Aren't the ribbons of color beautiful, Astrid? I know how you love to learn new things... you might enjoy this article... especially the graphics:

I get used to see views from the South Rim so it's wonderful to see a different view from the other side which relatively few people get to. Is the North Rim a sensible day trip from your home?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: We do like going where others don't bother!
It's about 4-5 hours.... longer if you make a lot of photo stops like we do! So we prefer to take a long weekend or something, to get the most out of it. We like staying at Vermillion Cliffs / Marble Canyon - as it's a good "base" for the North Rim and the Paria Wilderness, as well as Lees Ferry and the Page area.
This place always looks awesome E
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh... there are no words left to describe it... smile

Who named these mountains, the indigenous people or the new arrivals. If it was the native, they would have had their own names...obviously.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Mostly it was the white explorers who named these. Some features have retained their Native American names... usually only if the whities could pronounce them.

Layer upon layer of canyon and then your subject in the spotlight. Excellent.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Louis!
Two amazing pictures, I can't get over all the different strata layers there is, it must have taken millions and millions of years to get laid down and then worn away.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It's amazing isn't it! I like this short and sweet article, that lays it out concisely:

I like the lower one best.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Tom - it is nice to see the "bowl"
Gorgeous light. I like the layers and the natural tones. Friendship
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: God's gift.. I just pressed the shutter button! Thank you, Ruthie! I hope you're feeling well!
