I doubt there is a more photogenic place on Earth than The Canyon, Frank...love your into-the-sun innovation.
Frank L Croston.: There can't be many, if any, as you say, Ray, the problem is repetition.....Thanks very much.
Just stunning, Frank! I love how you've captured the light rays ans flare. She was so relaxed and at peace there, wasn't she!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Elizabeth, she seemed to be, in spite of the other, ignorant people nearby.

On top of the world, what an amazing place. Fabulous shot with the rays and all. My thought, this pace is never the same, it changes before your eyes.
What a privilege to be able to see and observe.
I hope the lady found what she was looking for (NO joking)
Frank L Croston.: I feel it a privilege to be there every time I go, Astrid, ( how lucky am I to be able to say that! ) it is a wonderful place, I feel more there than any church I have been in, I'm sure she took some of that feeling away with her.

Don't be too concerned about repetition on a subject like this, and this one is quite, quite different. I feel we are sharing this with her
Frank L Croston.: Well I'm glad you do, Elisabeth, thank you.
You can "repeat" this kind of view any time you want, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Oh thanks, Ginnie, that's very nice of you.

Masterful stuff Frank
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Chris, always appreciated.
An amazing view. It can't be repetitive as I am sure it constantly changes
Frank L Croston.: Oh it does, Bill, it's just that the same viewpoints are used by most people, it is never boring though. Thanks.

This picture shows the 'endlessness' up, quite well. I agree that the problem is in repetition - you can have your mug in front of a tourist feature - a la Japanese tourist - or you can set yourself apart as and accomplished photographer. As I have indicated previously - you show new faces of the canyon and use suitable styles.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Louis, as a visitor here, ( at the moment) I feel privileged to be able to take photo's here, it is one place that truly deserves the description of, awesome....A word that is greatly overused here..smile Which makes your comment all the more appreciated, thanks again.

A fabulous view. The lens flare adds to the image. I can't imagine that she was alone, though - sure there must have been around 1900 or so Japanese just out of camera shot? wink I have been alone on the rim, though - once the sun has dipped below the horizon everyone just heads off back to the village.
Frank L Croston.: thanks very much, Alan. you are right about it emptying after sunset...smile Yes, you are also right about her not being alone, apart from Elizabeth and I, there were three or four girls who I had had to ask to cut out all the 'effing and blinding' ! I'm sorry to say the worst offender was English.

A marvellous view, indeed! A great image! I think I should have seen this grandious place of the world before dying.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Philine, with your travels I'm surprised you haven't...smile
The air is rarefied up here and visible too. Very nice shot.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much, Mary.
Absolutely amazing shot Frank, you were so lucky to find this lady there in quiet contemplation.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much, Brian, yes I was, I tried not too intrude.
excellent shot. love the exposure of all the elements here Frank, works perfectly
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Ayush, that's very nice of you.
Rather dreamy!
Frank L Croston.: Dream of a place, Tom...smile
I think she is enjoying a "top of the world" feeling Frank. Wonderful capture
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much Janet, I know I do every time I go.
Very good Matey.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Bud...I'm glad you approve..smile
