This is a great shot. Beautiful! The Grand Canyon is definitely on my list of things to see eventually.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, I used to dream of seeing it, now I live 2hrs away and visit regularly, how lucky am I!
Excellent shot, Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Ma'm, good to have got something on this windy day.

What always surprises me with the bits of the Grand Canyon I've seen is just how relatively flat the rim is; this shot shows that perfectly. I still struggle to get my head round the fact that the river made this incredible landscape.
Frank L Croston.: I've commented on this to Elizabeth, it must have been quite a shock to the first explorers coming to the edge, and yes, to think the river caused it, oh to travel back in time to see it happening.

You show unique views of the Canyon, Frank, in its never-ending grandeur
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Elisabeth, you are very kind, some more to come this week.
You half on top of the world...Superb capture Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much, Richard.

I doubt if I could ever tire of Grand Canyon shots Frank, the variety is limitless
Frank L Croston.: It is, Chris, you could go every day.
You have an endless source of pictures Frank...keep them coming!
Frank L Croston.: I'll do my best, Bill, thanks.
He must be taking a selfie Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thats what you expect, Andrew, if so he's facing the wrong way smile

On the top of the world - not a spot for Vertigo.
Frank L Croston.: Indeed, Mike, we passed a couple with the guy leading his wife along, repeating, " don't look down,don't look down! "

Un magnifique point de vue

Frank L Croston.: Indeed it is, thank you.
Strange how that one column is a lighter coloured sandstone.
Frank L Croston.: Actually most of the outcrop we were on was the same, Mary.

Neat layering of the ridges, as one continues into the distance. Nice balance of the picture, with the person on top.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Louis, he saved ordering my usual model to climb up there. smile
Great shot once again with Elizabeth in a very good position within the composition. This place, apart from being a wonder of nature, must be a Geologists delight.
Frank L Croston.: I think Elizabeth will let you off for thinking this guy was her, Brian...smile Oh it is, the different colours and types of rock is amazing.

Fabulous, Frank. The person in the frame adds to the image IMHO.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Ray, oh, I agree, I wouldn't have taken it without the guy in the shot.
I would love to go back...
Frank L Croston.: I feel so lucky that I can, repeatedly. smile I hope you do one day, Larry.
