Photographer's Note

I had planned on a different photo for this posting, but was threatened by Craig (macjake) to show one or two more from the Grand Canyon…so I must oblige! :)

This is a seemingly generic shot, and not one that even comes close to viewing the canyon floor within the frame. What I did like about this however, is the small group of tourists at a lookout point near the top right corner…that should put everything into perspective here! We really are quite small in this most majestic setting of natures wonder.

The canyon itself is 277 miles (446 km) long, up to 18 miles (29 km) wide and reaches a depth of over 6,000 feet (1,800 meters). For those that have visited, you understand the magnitude and inspiring nature of this place…and for those that haven’t made it just yet, take my advice…don’t wait as long as I did!?

Thanks for taking stopping by for a look.
