North rim storm....

                            Following on from Mondays photo of a lightning storm on the South Rim, this storm was about to erupt at the same time across the Canyon on the North Rim.

Incredible and beautiful at the same time.

I like the almost the splendid isolation of the cloud which has its own dump of rain.
Frank L Croston.: I love seeing weather systems that are isolated like this, its a feature here.

This is so wonderful to see the "doors of heaven" opening and pouring down. Great moment to capture, Frank, you chose the right spot here.
Frank L Croston.: Yes it is, Astrid. We were lucky to be in the right place, thanks.

What a gorgeus cloud! I can imagine the storm, a nature spectacle!
Frank L Croston.: It was great Philine, nature putting on a great show.
You get to see and photograph some spectacular scenes Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Indeed we do Bill, we had gone especially that day hoping for a storm and we got two at once!
Wouah...impressionnant !!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Claudine, it was!

The cloud cannot hold its water any more and is suffering from incontinence Frank.
Frank L Croston.: I suppose thats one way to look at it Andrew....
dramatic scene, you were at the ideal viewpoint.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Martin, we were indeed.
Watching the clouds must be the best part of this wonderful place. You capture it expertly.
Frank L Croston.: It is one of the things we like to do there, we struck lucky this day. Thank you Mary.

Wow!Amazing cloud formation.
Frank L Croston.: Wait till tomorrow Bonnie, this becomes a MONSTER!
a great shot of nature at work.

One of the things I miss from not living in such open spaces is not seeing scenes like this.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Alan, one of the things I love about living here is seeing things like this.

It reminds me of that Men in Black poster, where the huge alien ship is hovering over the White House. In a sense, this picture emphasises the size of the canyon. Excellent picture.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Louis. There is a large black cloud over the Whitehouse at the moment
Good timing again Frank. I fthere was a storm on both rims of the canyon could one keep dry by standing in the middle smile
Frank L Croston.: It would be a long hard walk Brian, we stayed remarkably dry where we were. Thanks.
Already dumping its rain - lovely shot, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Tom, it made more of an effort later, tune in to se....smile
