  2. Nice one, Scott. Would it be worth cropping out the distracting white sky? Or am I just being annoyingly picky? 🙂

    • Perhaps it would have been better if the sky was blue, but I think you need the sky to give a sense of scale. If you crop it out, you wouldn’t be able to tell how much the canyon towers over the trees…just my two cents.

      • You might remember that the skies are often/mostly white here in the desert, Laura…it’s not often that we notice a true, rich blueness to them…and you’re correct, or shared my opinion, anyway, we needed the sky to show the height of the canyon walls… we’ve got four cents together. 🙂

    • Thank you, Frank…I had experimented with cropping-out the white sky, but wanted the dimension that it added in showing the height of the cliffs.

    • It was rather nice down there in the canyon, Gunta…almost chilly in the morning, but then warmer after the sun crept over the cliffs. I didn’t venture into the water, but a met a fellow-hiker who was in her swim-suit, and when I asked if she had gone swimming, she said that she had, and while it was refreshing, it was freezing. 🙂
