    its in moments like these that one realizes how insignificantly small we are in the whole scheme of things. to experience them is an enlightenment in itself!

    I remember when I saw the Grand Canyon with my own eyes – I was awestuck. It brought a lump to my throat.

      It’s fun to sit by the Visitor’s Center of the South Rim and listen to people who are seeing it for the first time. Holy Sh!t comes up a lot. LOL.

    Oh lovely, I was just there – you really do need the people on the cliffs to give some sense of scale, however feeble it may be through the limits of the lens

      Yes, it really is almost (completely?) impossible to convey the scale of Grand Canyon on film.

    Beautifully captured. Raunak said it best …. “how insignificantly small we are in the whole scheme of things” That’s what came to mind when I looked at the photo. I feel that way sometimes when I look up into the heavens ….. like a little tiny speck on the planet.

    It is beautiful there. I was there two years ago this week. I made sure to get people in some of the shot just to show the scale. We saw Hoover dam, Painted Desert, Sedona, and the Grand Canyon.
    And we want to go back.

    We just visited the Grand Canyon for the first time this past fall. WOW. What an amazing sight! It’s difficult to even take it all in because of how vastly huge it is. Great photo of the rock!
