Apocalypse now...

               Over the North rim seen across the Marble platform, you can see the little Colorado gorge in the bottom right which weaves its way  to the Grand Canyon. This the same cloud/storm I showed yesterday seen an hour later on our drive home.

I suppose this is big weather to appropriately fit a big country Frank
Frank L Croston.: Yes it is Chris, and we are still short of water....
An apocalyptic sky without any help from photoshop
Frank L Croston.: Straight out of the tin Bill!

That’s what I call torrential Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Indeed, Andrew, there were numerous bolts of lightning too.

That’s amazing, it looks like a waterfall pouring out of the sky.
Frank L Croston.: Isn't it just, you often see storms like this, but this was a whopper!
Amazing countryside, it seems to be flat with the canyon going down rather than in mountains. Quite near Nottingham there is a similar place, on a much smaller scale of course, called Cresswell crags, I featured it here a long time ago.

Sadly still no response to my four SC internal system problem reports and three emails regarding the problem with my blog, I can only hope it is because they are on holiday, it is frustrating not being able to do virtually anything at all.
Frank L Croston.: It is quite remarkable how flat it is around the Grand Canyon, what a surprise it must have been to the first explorers. I'm sorry you are still having problems Brian, is anyone else?
That looks serious rain, what an awesome shot Frank
Frank L Croston.: Very serious Martin, lots of lightning bolts too. Thank you.
The landscape is similar there to here in that you can see weather happening a far way off. You took great advantage here.
Frank L Croston.: I do like that about here, that you can see weather a long way off. Thank you.
