Photographer's Note

This view is from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon at a high elevation level around 8,200 ft. This is Cape Royal and it is reached by a very curvy, windy 23 mile road called the Cape Royal Road.
This forested plateau, part of kaibab Forest, was a seasonal home for Ancestral Puebloans, also known as the Anasazi, who hunted game and grew crops here in the summer, then they moved to inner canyon villages during winter months. There is an ancient Native American Puebloan archeological site there as well.
We watched the storm roll in and it rained for a short while, but being summer we stayed out and visited the sites in spite of the rain storm.
The North Rim is less visited than the South Rim but really worth the trip.
I liked how the dark stormy clouds brought down wisps of greyness over the mountain tops.
I added a bit of contrast to the image and straightened the image just a tad to provide a sense of balance.
Any comments or critiques are most welcome.
Have a great day and enjoy my photo.
