Holy crud!! This is like some unexplored martian landscape. The smoke in the background really adds effect to the whole mountain enviroment. and all those rich deep colours in the rocks add an almost mystical feel to the whole view.
I worked for the concession on the north rim. My job was to drive bus - so three times a week, I'd take a busload on tour to the main points on the rim. The other two days a week, I'd drive a group down to the base of the dam near Page, AZ, and drop them off for a 1 day raft trip down the Colorado. I'd pick them up at Lee's Ferry and then bus them back to the North Rim.
Thanks! I was actually kinda struggling with it since pretty much the entire palate of the scene is warm colors. I pushed up the blue in the haze just ever so slightly to try and make the scene stand out a little better.
