I've never ever seen that! Thanks for the tour. Lovely use of rule of thirds. I like the spots of green here.
Frank L Croston.: Off the road to Lees ferry, Bonnie. Not much green around that area, Thank you.
This is awesome. A Marscape.
Frank L Croston.: Like much of this area, Rob. Thank you.
Beautiful photo, Frank! I didn't seem to get a good shot of this place - I love your perspective!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Elizabeth, I'm sure you did...
Très jolie vue avec de belles couleurs.

Amazing - carved out by water I guess Frank..
Frank L Croston.: Thats right Chris, you would not want to be down there after a storm nearby.

It almost looks man-made. The colours really zing again the overcast sky.
Frank L Croston.: It does Alan, further in the base is smooth and rounded. Thanks.

What I like about this kind of pictures is all the layers that are visible. All the curves in the ground of thousands of years water running through. These pictures are a delight to me, Frank. The sky is great too.. You are a lucky man to witness this with your own eyes!!
Frank L Croston.: That I am Astrid, I know it. The whole area around here is remarkable, one of our favourite places.

This must have had some torrents raging in it Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Indeed Andrew, quite often after a storm boulders the size of the one bottom left in the photo litter the road nearby, swept down from the cliffs
Cracking picture Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much Bill.
Terrific shot Frank, nature has really got to work here, just look at all those layers.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Brian, been at it for a while....

Parts of the walls look as if constructed from sand bags. Since deserts fascinate me, I find this a beautiful landscape.
Frank L Croston.: They do Louis, its very soft and flaky rock, its a wonderful place.
The vibrant colour of the rock and contrasting sky is brilliantly capture in this shot, Frank. An image to be proud of.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much Beverley, thats very nice of you to say.

What lovely layering within the rock, ...and then that sky - wonderful!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much Anne, we followed it down, but were stopped by pools of water.
Lots of different rocks in the wash. Very nice.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much Mary. Lots of them washed down from the cliffs above. Not a safe place in a storm.
You have made a great photo, beautiful landscape and the mixture of brown and grey appeals to me.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much Catherine, thats very nice of you.
i'm sure that the Colorado river created this wash a long time ago... i love your point of view Frank....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much Peter, as it helped create the Grand Canyon, this would be NO trouble smile
Thousands of years of erosion marked on the landscape.
Frank L Croston.: Very much so Tom.
