Sharing moments in time…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Evanescent

One of many Grand Canyon morning memories

I just recently returned from 16 days on a Dory trip down the entire length of the Grand Canyon.  The trip was remarkable with changing scenes and moods around every bend in the circuitous meandering of the river.  I’ve chosen the photo above as an example of one of those fleeting scenes.  The sun just peeking over the canyon, the clouds providing some change overhead, and the quickly advancing rays of the sun greeting the canyon and a dry wash littered with rocks – all of these added to this quick flash in time – never to be seen again in this exact form.  I was glad I was able to capture it and keep that morning alive in my (and hopefully your) mind.

  6. A wonderful shot, Scott. I rafted on the Green River in Utah once for a week and it was an amazing experience.

    • Janet, I’ve been to the area around the green river but never down it. Sounds like a great trip.

  7. WOW you are brave to trek the Grand Canyon. When I saw it I understood why it is called The “GRAND”. It is one of the most amazing sights. But I was scared to see that one wrong foot could take one quickly to one’s doom. I am too much of a chicken.

    • Neha – It is amazing….and actually pretty accessible. We only scared ourselves a “little bit”
