photoblog image Distant storm.

Distant storm.

        A snowstorm blows across highway 89A, blocking our view of the route towards the North rim of the Grand Canyon.

                                Not that it stopped us...

           I'll carry on next week with more pic's from, and of, Highway 89.

Dramatic...in a strangely beautiful way.
Frank L Croston.: Indeed Ray, it was, the power of nature.
I LOVE this shot, Frank! It shows nicely how impressive that storm was! Great fun!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Elizabeth, from afar it was fun! smile

Don't you just love this, Frank. You don't need any "weather-man" to predict the kind of weather that is coming.... love the drama here.
Frank L Croston.: We both enjoyed seeing this, we were hoping for some drama, and as you see, we got it. Thanks Astrid.
Very dramatic, Frank, and appropriate for what's going on in America right now! WOW.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Ginnie, yes, its a good metaphor.

I am pleased you put this on today, as I was going to ask if you are experiencing the awful temperatures and snow we see on our TVs
Frank L Croston.: Well yesterday ( Friday) I had to endure 70deg. f. in Phoenix. Then drove home to Flagstaff where it was 32 deg.f. Other than that we have been pretty normal. The North West has been unbelievable. We are expecting some snow soon, but nothing extraordinary.
By the way, the other John Boyne book I would recommend is 'A history of loneliness'. But as I said, they are all good Elisabeth.

It looks very threatening, I have to say. Good for you; Scott would have done the same. We had snow in the city last night; only about two millimetres sad .
Frank L Croston.: I have to uphold our brave forefathers Alan, unless Elizabeth says differently....smile
You had snow, I hope you have cleared the shelves at Tesco of essentials...
Impressionnant quand même !!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Claudine.

I could not imagine a mere storm, hurricane or Tornado affecting the path of yourselves across this amazing landscape..
Frank L Croston.: Ha, ha, I think you be overestimating our capabilities somewhat Chris. smile
I would have turned around and gone homegrin
Frank L Croston.: But then we would never have discovered the West! smile

Dramatic and impressive. Again I admire your composure of "low" foreground and "high" background.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much Louis, though I think I have a tendency to include too much sky in my landscapes, although in this case there was a lot to see.

Amazing scene Frank, well captured.
Frank L Croston.: It was good to see, Andrew, thank you.
The circular foreground suggests a whirlwind to add to the stormy feel. Good all together!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much Mary.

What drama!
Frank L Croston.: Indeed, great fun !
Nowhere to rush for shelter is there.
Frank L Croston.: Except to turn around...But it was travelling right to left quite fast, so we were ok, Brian.
You certainly were brave to go into this storm, Frank. Fabulous capture!
Frank L Croston.: Well it was moving fast across the road, we were rewarded with the views we got from the other side. Thank you Beverley.
A hostile looking land!
Frank L Croston.: Yes indeed in this mood, Tom.
Big sky, small ground...
Frank L Croston.: Don't know about small ground, Larry....smile
