This is majestic. It is so difficult to capture the awe of this kind of site and you nailed it, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: I thank you very much Beth, nice of you to say. I agree about how difficult it is to capture this place, which is why I usually prefer paintings of it. That makes your comment all the better to me.
Beautiful shot, Frank - I love how your photo shows off those clouds! The Vermillion Cliffs shine brightly in the sun waaaaay out there! Hey! Let's go to the Cliffs for Christmas!!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Elizabeth. The Vermillion cliffs, Christmas....Oh, if we

Another excellent show of the canyon. The stacked clouds add to viewing pleasure.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much Louis.
Impressionnante prise de vue ..
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much Claudine.

Frank L Croston.: No bacon butties though, bud..
This is a cracking picture Frank. Great foreground leading to a wonderful sky
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much Bill.
Using that foreground as a frame really gives this image some depth.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Brian, I hoped that would be the result.

In all its magnificence! This is lovely Frank
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much Anne.
You have certainly created excellent depth here and wonderful colour. It appears 3D in spots. This is one of your best, I'd say, top five anyway.
Frank L Croston.: Thats very nice of you Mary, maybe I should look back at
