A view from Yaki Point on the south rim as a huge thunderstorm builds over the north rim, creating a fabulous "Spielberg-esque" sky over the Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA.

Hell Brian ,
Wow ! You've got the chance with the weather conditions during your trip . This thunderstrom creates a dramatic atmosphere in this fantastic landscape . What could be a little disturbing is the fact that the horizon line is centered . But how to do differently , to include the whole cloud , and the view of the canyon ?

Another dramatic sky to top this splendid image. Here again, the depth is wonderful. I like the subdued lighting, which accentuates the sculptured effect in the rocky landscape.

another stunning capture from this really impressive location.. fine to see it in different weather conditions as normally (sunny and bright..), the bad weather is making the different touch here..
have a nice weekend, see you soon, regards Bernd

This is another of your wonderful Arizona shots. I love it! That sky is just superb and certainly gives the impression of impending doom. Fabulous colours and perfect detail and sharpness.
Just out of interest, I thought I'd pop this into Elements and look at "Levels" - you can see the result in a little workshop which I have attached. I most definitely do not present this workshop as a criticism, but I should be interested to know what your feelings are about levels in this one. Knowing that you do spend a lot of time editing and perfecting your pictures, I just thought I'd raise this matter and seek your comments. After all, that's the way we all can learn!
As with your last posting, this one is also a Stunner!

Très impressionnante photo! Ce ciel menaçant survolant un paysage si accidenté et étrange.
Bravo pour cette prise de vue.

another good one from grand Canyon, less spectacular than the previous one but with more subtle hues and giving a different view of the ever changing colors of the rocks, depending on the season, the weather and the time of day
here a gorgeous sky, of course
have a nice day
