Striking... the walker really helps give the picture scale.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Hollie, yes it needed the walker.

Love those back-lit shrubs on the top, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Ray.
the walker looks like she is walking out of a furnace Frank... i like the backlight trees as well....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: It was pretty hot that day, Peter, thanks.
I just love the light you captured in this shot. It's so hard to capture the glow of the Canyon - but I believe you have Mr. Croston! Even the trees look lit from inside!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Elizabeth, the light was good that evening....smile
This is a stunner Frank! Look at this magnifiscent light.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Richard...The light that evening was special.

Wow - the backlighting illuminates this shot wonderfully Frank
Frank L Croston.: It was great, Chris, we were really pleased to come across it here.
I like the human for scale Frank, also that tree clinging to what looks like rock.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Andrew, the trees seem to grow in any crack they can find.
It goes without saying I like the trees but the walker really gives the whole thing scale doesn't it.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Brian, yes, it is one thing you need in shots of the canyon.

Spectacular, it is just amazing how the trees can take hold and hang on in there
Frank L Croston.: It is, Anne, yes, the trees seem to be able to take root anywhere.

I could kick myself for never having done any of the trails to the river; I was put off by the warning signs, I suppose, forgeting that they were aimed at ratehr portly Amercincas who any exercise is to get to ino their SUV to drive across the road to the mall. The figure makes this for me.
Frank L Croston.: They do look good walks, Alan, but not to be taken lightly, we got about halfway down 'Bright Angel' the trouble is the hard part comes last!
It looks magical at sunset Frank. Beautiful shot
Frank L Croston.: It did, Janet, thank you.
You have some special light. I suppose this is a popular time here.
Frank L Croston.: We did, sunset is very popular, Mary.

The scale here is phenomenal. I like the little people. The lighting is unreal, amazing.
Frank L Croston.: The scale of the canyon is so hard to convey, and we were so lucky with the light that evening, we were just heading home. Thanks, Bonnie.
