The overlook view

                              A snowstorm in the distance covers highway 89A, Arizona, the Vermillion cliffs are to the left. Fridays photo was from the other side of the storm.

Wow - such an expanse! I love how you've captured this, Frank! It was quite a sight wasn't it!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Elizabeth. It certainly was !
If this is "from the other side of the storm," Frank, does that mean you went through it? If so, I don't suppose you were able to "see" anything?!
Frank L Croston.: We were lucky in that the storm passed across the front of us, Ginnie. We were able to watch it pass, it was moving fast!

I love those W I D E landscapes out there Frank. It even dwarfs the snowstorm
Frank L Croston.: Me too Chris, it makes you feel very small.

You get such wide and huge views out your way, Frank
Frank L Croston.: Yep, nothing narrow here Elisabeth, except the slot canyons, you have to squeeze through them. smile

I love the wide view here and that storm was quite the storm, Frank. (Did you go through it?)
Frank L Croston.: Its quite a view from here, its the road to the North rim of the Grand Canyon, it rises up out of the plain below. The storm passed across the front of us Astrid, quite spectacular to see.
Magnifique ...immensité à  perte de vue
Frank L Croston.: It is beautiful, in its own way, Claudine.
So you got through it then!
Frank L Croston.: Well it passed in front of us, Bill, across our bows as Louis put it. smile

It looks a bit like a wilderness Frank.
Frank L Croston.: It doesn't just look like one Andrew...smile

I gather the storm ran across your bows, so to speak. There was no snow on the ground in Friday's pic and neither in this one. Another excellent landscape.
Frank L Croston.: Correct Louis, a good description, it moved very fast. Thanks very much.
and looks like there is not much shelter either, Frank. a nice touch of rugged wilderness here.
Frank L Croston.: None at all Ayush, you are on your own out there!

Did you drive right through it?
Frank L Croston.: We were luck in that it was moving across in front of us so we just got to watch it, it moved very fast!
Another very fine shot Frank. that edge in the distance is rather like some of the Millstone Grit edges in the north of the Peak District. (Sorry, I enjoyed Geology at school.)
Frank L Croston.: Having seen them both Brian, with all due respect the only similarity is the shape smile
Being still on the sunny side is great, eh! Beginning to get dramatic.
Frank L Croston.: We were lucky with the storm moving left to right in the pic', so we just got to watch, not endure.
well shot Frank... we can see the storm front approaching....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Peter.
