Weekly Photo Challenge: Room

Since this week’s photo challenge left it pretty open for interpretation, I’ll try to show a an interpretation of “room to roam”.  This is kind of a self serving interpretation as we have recently returned from a roam through the southwestern national parks.  I chose this photo because it provides a glimpse of the incredible scale of the Grand Canyon – it is always hard to get a good photograph that shows that immensity.  I should mention that I also processed this photo as a painting within photoshop because it is hard for me to put the Canyon in context without considering it as an amazing work of natural art….

Room to roam, to ponder, and admire

OBTW – this was taken near the desert view area of the canyon at the east end of the park.

    • Jeff – You’ll be glad to know that when we went to the North Rim (over 8,500 ft)- it actually snowed! I figure you would have felt right at home!

      • Give me a shot like yours and I don’t need snow. Though I sure wouldn’t mind it 😉

  5. A magical place – the Grand Canyon. It’s so difficult to take a photo that conveys that feeling, but you’ve done a wonderful job with this one.

    • Jackie – Thank you! You would think with the majesty of the place it would be an easy shot but I agree with you – its hard to do it justice.

    • Janet – Mine also! Throw in a couple of puppies, a bear or two, maybe a wolf ….and I’d be ready to move in for the duration.
