There's just no way to truly capture the Grand Canyon with a camera, but I tried my best.

A couple people climbed a ways done from the overlook for their own special view (lower right corner):

Great shots, I like the third one the best, the snow on the overlook gives it perspective.

Great shots. I really gotta get down there at some point.

Very good shots, Lonnie. More snow around than when we were there late January, early February. You're right, though, no way a camera can truly capture the size and spectacle of the GC.

Great shots of a truly amazing place. One can just not fathom the size of it.

Thanks everyone.

I'd been saying that since the last time I was there, almost 30 years ago. It was nice to finally make it back.

There was a lot of snow and ice on the day I was there. A storm had just blown through during the previous two or three days. The ice made it difficult to walk around some of the overlooks. Most of it had melted away by the end of the day, though.

I felt the same. I thought the way I cropped it showed the size of the place best. That one will end up getting printed and framed.

When you first get out of your car and walk to an edge, your jaw hits the ground. It is just spectacular beyond belief.... Love your shots, Lonnie. I have only seen snow there once.


Life is hard...but I just take it one photograph at a time.

I don't think that any L lens made will ever even come close to capturing its beauty. Nice work!
