This is time the Grand Canyon looks really washed out, with the sun literally burning down on everything and everybody: not a very good time to photograph its beauty, yet, one cannot come away without capturing, so here are some pictures, they look quite good:
Wearing a wide brim hat did make me feel very silly, but I stopped worrying about it, as one of the great things about the Grand Canyon is that absolutely everyone there is a tourist and they all look pretty silly !
Gazing at the beautiful views of the canyon from the various vista points is the activity, one never gets tired of despite the heat.
And one never tires of taking pictures: strangely sometimes one feels that everything looks the same, and yet the next moment, one feels it looks so different
Wow! look at the beautiful clouds
We were there in the month of August 2010, and it was very, very hot. But the evenings were so pleasant and the views everywhere were really beautiful. The buses are plenty, and one can hop in and hop out from various color coded buses to see specific points.There are buses from early morning till evening, to catch the sunrise and the sunsets.We had to opt for the hot morning views and came back again for the evening sunset.
The sizzling afternoon summer
At the background is the Temple of Shiva
See how the afternoon rays paint the rocks: whatever the time of the day, the sun always plays the most important role, in making things look exceptionally beautiful, and the lucky ones capture it...
