Looks like you got there are just the right time,
Gary! Beautiful shot! When I went, it was mid-
day, hot and totally hazy below..couldn't see

they took pictures of our dogs! LOL I love
this wonderful shot! Congratulations on your

So glad you and Debby are enjoying your road trip, Gary; thanks for taking us along! My sister once told me it's impossible to take a BAD shot of the Canyon; I'm not sure if that's right, but you have done a fine job with this series. Congrats on your AC for this great shot!

Love the foreground selection and placement in the composition. Looks like you managed to make it later in the day for those wonderful long deep shadows. We're enjoying your road trip.

About Railheel

Railheel

My name is Gary and I'm a retired railroader. I have always enjoyed photography and now that I have the time I take lots of photos. My late wife of 40 years and I traveled from our home in Western North Carolina to her home in Ridgecrest Calif. one or more times a year. Our love is going to National Parks as we traveled this great land of ours. We have been blessed by seeing over 30 Parks showing Gods Wonders. WeatherUnderground allows me to visit across this country and around the world from my recliner.
