SkyWatch Friday / Grand Canyon and the Painted Desert



This is a view of the Grand Canyon in the late afternoon from the eastern end...Desert View area. Looking northeast you can get a glimpse of the amazing colors of the Painted Desert. It was an extraordinary day (November 21, 09) of sunshine and cold temperatures...but, beautiful!

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

I have never seen a bad sky over the Grand Canyon. You captured this one well and also the Painted Desert in the distance. I'll Bet it's cold there now.

Great shot. I love the green blue sky fading to almost white on the horizon.

Beautiful! I can see this is the perfect time to go, the colors are much sharper than in the summer. Stunning shot.

Burnished ancient walls,
freshly painted sky—canyon
country soothes my soul.

Wonderful photo of this beautiful area in the Southwest! The colors are so vivid! Hope you and yours had a lovely Thanksgiving. By the way ... those photos of Molly at Small Reflections were taken at Huntington's Dog Beach. I wonder if we've passed one another and if your dog(s) have played with her? Small world ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

Yes, the Grand Canyon is Grand. (tee hee) All kidding aside your photograph is up to standards to be a lovely postcard in a gift shop. Nice work!
