A view of the clouds floating above the rocky buttes rising like colourful temples from the canyon floor on the south rim the Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA.

The Grand Canyons remain a wonderful area for photographers.
What a nice cloudy sky, with wonderful colours.
Also the rocks are always something especially
Very well composition, nice captured.
Nice done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Over wonderful expansive view over this fascinating and magnificent landscape. Light and colours are divine whilst the long string of clouds contribute much to the atmosphere of the shot. I wish you a very pleasant weekend.

Great shot. I just love the colours in the canyon and those beautiful clouds. Spectacular image.

This another amazing post from the Grand Canyon in your gallery! I love how the intensive tones of the rocks play with each other to build really special visual effect. Excellent work! Bravo!

This is a beautiful scene, tho clouds are amazing in shape and color, and to have them presented above this amazing landscape is just woooooo. It's like a scene from Kyonasquatsi,a visn of beauty from this little blue marble we all live on. Perfect
Ight too, class.
Thanks as always

A truly breathtaking view of the Grand Canyon. The DOF is incredible, and both the clouds and the rocks look 3D. Congratulations and thank you for sharing this scene!
All the best,

Hi Brian! It is never too much to see pictures from that magnificent place and this one is certainly wonderful! I wish I can go back there one more time! Cheers, Neyvan

"Dopey", eh? Well then, that's what we're going with. :P
Sorry to hear about your dreaded lurgy, I sure hope it's nothing like mine over New Years...that'll mes you up pretty good. Keep drinking that magical elixir...or is it just a case of the brown bottle flu?. lol
Good to know you still have your sense of humor, and physical stamina to post a new photo...one of which will always find its way to my monitor. I envy the weather you had during your visit here, those clouds give so much more to the canyons appeal. Plus, they add a terrific contrast to the barren and dry landscape.
This wide view and composition really helps put the grandeur in perspective...and to think, this is but a small slice. Even an aerial shot doesn't cover the entire canyon. Massive, isn't it?
What else can I say, another stunning look over this marvel of nature. It never stops being amazing. Get plenty of rest, take it easy for a while...don't push yourself into the Grumpy and Sneezy side. Get well soon mate. Take good care.
Cheers from the Feenix,
Thanks much for the football support, we definitely need all we can get now that the stakes are 'win or go home.'

Tu as visiblement encore beaucoup de trésors photographiques de l'endroit! Belle vue panoramique du Grand Canyon surmonté par ce ciel fantastique.

Fantastic panoramic view, the area is simply breathtaking, absolutely splendid photo

Beautiful picture of the great canyon. The cloud formation is just superb. I like this picture.

Hi Brian - Here the clouds make a strong compositional statement as they float above the canyon and fill the upper third with their beauty. The detailing within them is very well captured and I love the way they give depth to the scene... they go forever. Within the rock formations there are so many tints and hues that all the layer of rock are well defined. A majestic place.
Have a good sunny Sunday
macjake (67846) 2014-06-29 1:18
now those are some clouds!
you know I often say it...clouds can make or break a shot, and here they certainly make it!
love the various lighting conditions in the gorge too.
wicked shot all around

I dream to see this place by my own one day ! A fantastic landscape, so wild, with so many incredible colours. The clouds are very beautiful and you kept good details in the sky.

I never get tired of seeing photos of the Grand Canyon. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red cliffs blue sky and hazy valley and the yellow tinted clouds. Good shadow detail and excellent sharpness. Good to have the horizon line away from the centre. Tfs!
ikeharel (71525) 2014-07-05 4:26
variable light condition and wonderful set of colors, made a magnificent picture of the Grand-Canyon desert scenery, Brian.
The developed clouds forming above, are in fine contrast.
Nature's beauty par-excellence, superbly taken from the point you were standing.
Enjoy a nice weekend,
