I took a few photos on our one day trip to Grand Canyon but it seems like I only posted one or two of them in the last couple years. I’ll try and process a few more in the coming weeks and share with you guys. It was an amazing day out there and it would be nice to visit it again.
This was the beginning of the day, beautiful sunrise, what was followed by incredible day of sunshine, clouds and snowstorm. Grand Canyon is the place to see, if even not in person, but some other way.
We spent there only one day, but experienced all type of winter weather we could ask for. Sunny skies, dark stormy clouds, snow, fog and wind. All appeared in the span of 10 hours. With the size of the Grand Canyon you could see snow falls just a few miles away while you were under the perfect blue skies, then it would move your way and you’d be snowed in while other spots would be lighted up by the sun. Really awesome experience.
So here is another one from the Grand Canyon series.
What a place! True to its name, it is Grand. None of the photos will ever do the justice to its size and expanse. You have to see it in person with your own eyes to appreciate its true magnificence. If you guys never been to it, you have to put on your bucket list and try to visit it. We were there last year only for one day, on the South Rim, not enough! I’d like to see it again with at least a few days of on site exploration and hiking. Visiting the North Rim would be awesome as well. But for now I’ll just look at this photo, as it will be my wall paper for the next few days!
So I finally got into the Grand Canyon folder on my hard drive and sorted them out into stacks of the bracketed photos. I took so many of them during our short one day visit to the Grand Canyon, hopefully will be able to process more of them in the coming weeks and months.
During a single day we saw some sun, some blue sky, a lot of moving clouds and some serious snow storm. All types of weather in short 7-8 hours of daylight. Do you see the Colorado River?
As always, you can click on the image and see higher resolution image in my photo gallery. Enjoy.
We checked into El Tovar right around sunset, I took a few photos from the rim by the hotel and then we unloaded bags and had dinner at the bar in El Tovar restaurant. After dinner we decided to take a little night stroll on the rim and see how Grand Canyon looks in the dark. This is one of the views from the South rim of the Grand Canyon with some moon lightning in the back and hotel lightning on the foreground cliffs. In reality it was a bit darker, especially to a fresh eye, but after some time you could see almost the the same details as we see here. But the true magnificence of this natural landmark we didn’t see until next morning, well, I’ll leave those photos for another post(s).
