Those clouds make the picture, absolute wonderful.
Next time you see a stubborn tourist, just bribe her by inviting her for lunch, you might never know what happens after that grin.....
(and maybe Michael knows how to fly wink)
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Astrid, very true, who knows! If he does, I wish he'd teach me....smile

Some people like to be centre stage ... Have the Yanks invented a cloud machine?
Frank L Croston.: Could be Richard, we certainly see some good ones.

Yes.. tourists are always such a nuisance; however, local Arizona residents are fine, though wink What a tremendous vista; excellent in some ways but a bum view in an other smile
Frank L Croston.: Great view isn't it, Alan, we are going to return here, this was just a passing visit.

If you called like a male turkey in season, she would have moved. I think smile
Frank L Croston.: I know what she would have said to, Louis...smile
At least she wasn't looking at facebook
Frank L Croston.: We rarely do, Bill...smile

I love the clouds the most - you are likely to love the 'tourist' the most!
Frank L Croston.: You are not wrong, Philine, though I did like the clouds. smile

Elizabeth as a fine rückenfigur in the tradition of Caspar David Friedrich - shame about the info board though.
Frank L Croston.: I see what you mean, Mike, ( having looked him up smile ) it is a shame about the board, but other than an act of vandalism, there was nothing I could do, unless I resort to photoshop...Mmm. smile
What a landscape! Really love the look of the clouds
Frank L Croston.: Amazing isn't it, Mary, the clouds adding to it.
The tourist makes the picture, almost mirroring the sky with that colour top.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Martin, it did match, yes.
great views
Frank L Croston.: Yes they were, thanks, Chantal.
She does match the gorgeous sky Frank so not too much of a disaster. Fabulous view
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Janet, she did fit in well.

Keeping it painted makes the Forth rail bridge look a doddle smile
Frank L Croston.: It does, John, though I believe they don't do that any more...smile
I usually try and avoid having people in my landscape pictures but somehow this young lady you came across adds quite nicely to the picture Frank, I hope you agree. Seriously what an amazing view and a wonderful sky.
Frank L Croston.: Me too, Brian, except on the odd occasion,this being one of them. The view was infinite,and it seemed so were the clouds, Thanks.
You could have tipped her over the edge, Frank ;-) Ah! I see that Mick has already suggested that!
Frank L Croston.: You are getting as bad as him, and that's saying something ! smile

Those clouds are amazing - as for the tourist ... I think she is just waiting very patiently for you to take your pictures smile
Frank L Croston.: Aren't they just, Anne...We are both used to that...smile
i like the way that you captured what the tourist sees Frank... great composition....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Peter, I'm glad you like it.
