photoblog image Another view from the rim

Another view from the rim

                                  This time, the South rim of the Grand canyon.

  An homage to the artist Thomas Moran, another emigrant from Northern England....Who has a viewpoint named after him on the South rim of the Grand canyon.

Superbes couleurs de la roche.
Frank L Croston.: The colours are wonderful, Martine. Thanks.
I think you've done him proud, Frank! This is beautiful!
Frank L Croston.: I'd like to think so, Elizabeth, but he is hard to emulate, I do like his work,as I have told you I think paintings capture this landscape far better than photo's in most cases.

A brilliant view of the canyon, Frank.

Are you having a view point named after you?...Croston's Leap...Crostons Pencil...Crostons Ridge...some suggestions for consideration...
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Ray. Croston canyon will do....smile

Wow, like a painting - ole Moran will have to up the ante - oh no, he can't? Whatever, I believe you may make a few dollars, when you start a gallery with all your best canyon pictures. Can name the gallery Croston's Canyon.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Louis, a gallery? That would be nice...Cant see me making any money, good name though. smile

I've had a look at the work of Moran and you have replicated his work very well with this shot - assuming that was his intention. You make an interesting point to Mrs Croston Buckalew about paintings.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Alan, pleased you think so...Since my first visit I have thought that about paintings of the canyon, with a few exceptions of course.

This is amazing and I love your reply to Elizabeth. Often the camera does not 'catch' the real colours. I think Thomas Moran was in heaven every day while he was painting, what a gift.
One day I would love to see view for real...
Frank L Croston.: Wasn't he something, Astrid, and born about 20 miles from me! I hope you do see it one day, Elizabeth and I will take you with pleasure. smile
As beautyful as yesterday's one Frank! Well done!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much, Richard.

Strewth couldn't he paint well Frank

But you can photograph just as well. so maybe they'll name a peak after you one day..
Frank L Croston.: He is a favourite of mine,Chris, when you see his paintings full size they are amazing. You are too kind about my photo's...A peak? More likely a small mole hill...If anything. smile
The sunlight is bathing the area slowly but surely. Very nice image.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Mary.

Hard to believe in reality, a true test of the sublime.
Frank L Croston.: It is hard to take in, Mike, such a place.
A great honour for the artist Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Ha, ha...Thanks, Andrew. smile
You have come close to his style Frank. Another fine picture
Frank L Croston.: I'd like to think so, Bill, thanks very much.
This really captures the vastness of the canyon.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Brian.
Mmm - one can see what you were aiming for, Frank . Nicely done!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Tom, glad you think so.
