photoblog image Ellie at the canyon. 3.

Ellie at the canyon. 3.

As you look at this, you have to realise that there is no viewpoint in the Grand canyon where you can see more than a quarter of it....It is truly immense.

Strewth - the complete opposite of here today in Liverpool Frank
Frank L Croston.: Ah, Liverpool...We have history, not my favourite place. Well yesterday we had 9ins of snow, today we have bright sunshine, lovely day, sorry you don't, Chris, enjoy yourself.
She does love looking at those clouds. Excellent shot!
Frank L Croston.: Yes she does, thanks, Mary.
It looks like it was an exhilarating experience Frank. Great capture
Frank L Croston.: Very much so, Janet, thank you.

I'm surprised that you can even see a quater of it. Well done for getting that rock in place for your model.
Frank L Croston.: Me too, Alan. She made a meal of getting it in the right spot...I really had to shout loudly, but she made it....
Elizabeth gets in the most precarious spots to pose for you, perhaps she's thinking a bit higher up she might see a bit more than a quarter of the canyon.
Frank L Croston.: She does, good job you didn't see the 'close your eyes, hold my hand and trust me' spot I put her in earlier, Brian....smile
They named it well then Frank. A fine picture. Having Ellie in the picture is good because without a figure you would not even start to appreciate the scale!
Frank L Croston.: Yes they did, I cannot describe the size, at one place we went to I said to Elizabeth, having been told the depth at that place, that you could drop Scafell pike into there, and we would be stood here looking down on it, you cannot take it in.
Beautiful perspective, Frank! I'm happy I could be of service!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Elizabeth, you make the photo. smile
