Photo of the Day…Winter in the Grand Canyon


It’s the first day of winter here in Australia…and I started thinking about places I’ve been that were seriously cold 🙂

The Grand Canyon is one of them. This photograph was taken from the South rim on a seriously cold winters day.

It was such a beautiful place – the scenery was absolutely stunning – snow in the foreground and the sun shining in the background on the far wall of the canyon.

I love this photograph. The clouds and sepia tone give it an almost ‘heavenly’ feel….what do you think?

Has anyone else visited the Grand Canyon in the winter?

Please leave your comments below  – I’d really love to hear them – or connect with me on Facebook or twitter

  1. I love the composition and the ‘feel’ of the photograph. Altho’ I have been at the Canyon, it has been as an ‘ordinary tourist’ in the warmer season. I would never have picked the ‘where’: besides there is an otherwordly, poetic, painting-like quality to the photo almost making one wonder to which century it belongs . . .
