I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

Sky Watch Friday - Snagged a Grand Canyon Sunset


From Cape Royal trail looking southeast
I took this the night of Cape Royal sunset and posted that series here. They probably should have been my SWF post, but I just couldn’t wait. And this shot was taken on the walk back to my rig after the official sunset was over.

It is now definitely fall at Grand Canyon and the Aspen are turning gold. I hope to post some images tomorrow.

Breathtaking!
Enjoy the weekend.

Those are magnificent colors and the dead tree really adds interest to the photo! Beautiful!

Oh, yes, those bare limbs against that background are incredible and surely does speak of the approach of autumn! Fantastic shots and colors!

Have a great weekend!

Your new title heading is great! The sunset is so pretty too! And that cricket! OMG, wouldn't want to play with it either.

That's a scene worth waking up for. I love the Grand Canyon.

Beautiful photo. I really have to visit that country. You make it so inviting. Too bad teaching gets in the way of the fall there.
thanks.

Naturegirl said...

Loved this capture of the Canyon..was there last Spring but never a time to capture a sunset. Relatives of mine are RV.ing for a year! You live an adventurous life I'm sure!!

Diane AZ said...

The dark snag in front of those beautiful Grand Canyon sunset colors makes an awesome image.

I agree, the snaggy tree just adds to an already beautiful scene.

clairz said...

Such a wonderful shot, even more so when it is enlarged and you can see the details. It makes me want to go back to spend some more time at the Grand Canyon. The first time we went there, I caught my first glimpse from the road and was honestly struck completely speechless. It's one of those places where the photos are amazing and the reality is absolutely stunning.

Thank you for sharing this great photo.

Photo Cache said...

Awesome. I have to see the canyon in the fall someday.

Your front Yard is Beautiful. The landscaping must have cost a fortune. Well, I guess its Priceless.

That's a wonderful shot. I love bare trees against the sky and even more so in that spectacular setting.

What a "Grand" photo. Thanks for sharing.

Your Cape Royal sunset shots are Great! But this one is also beautiful and shows very nicely the change of the nature and its colours in autumn.

Have a delightful Friday and weekend,

Sunsets over the canyon must be something to behold. One day I would like to experience it for myself.

Thank you for visiting My Muskoka !

I realized several people were changing headers with the season and thought it fitting!

I love the views, but none match yours!

Jo said...

Hi Gaelyn;) what a stark subject the tree makes against the soft, sunset background. I look forward to more images.

Pam said...

Hi Gaelyn,
This is an amazing shot of the Grand Canyon...
It should be framed and sold to visitors at the Grand Canyon shop or maybe the flea markets you like to go to...
Pam :)

Deborah Godin said...

It looks like a sunset could get tangled in that snag and maybe stay a little longer...

Kitty said...

Your understanding and knowledge of the Grand Canyon really shows in your pictures - you present a fresh view of it every time!

Emily said...

Such an interesting shot. I love the sharp tree branches against that soft sky. Beautiful.
