Grand Canyon Flora

In the interest of not getting totally behind with posting photos – she says as she hits the road again and can’t do any photo processing – here are a few photos of Grand Canyon’s surprisingly diverse plant life.

Love the orange and blues together in this one.

And I almost like the buds more than the blooms on this cactus.

…and the way the agave leaves catch the pebbles.

Don’t ask how many shots I took of this Aspen leaf in Bright Angel Creek. I was obsessed with it.

Next up: my story of camping in Grand Canyon, what almost derailed the trip the night before I hiked in (spoiler alert: I’m a dork), and more photos, including some of the Colorado River.

    I like the prickly pear buds too – I think it is the textures you captured in them. I’m glad I’m not the only one that is a freak about rocks and leaves in clear streams! LOL Can’t wait to hear about the camping trip and hope your current trip is going well.

      Sherry – We are freaks together, ha. I just landed in Van Nuys, CA (the Valley) and will do some shooting and see friends, then onto San Diego. Should be fun.

    Love these photos. You wrote: “Aspen leaf in Bright Angel Creek. I was obsessed with it.” That is what makes great photographers. Ansel Adams would be at a spot for hours on end – waiting for that moment.

      Ron – Thank you for the kind words! Obsession can be a good thing.

    Obsessing over a leaf in the water is a great way to wile away a few hours. Thank goodness we have access to digital cameras. This obsession wouldn’t have been affordable with film cameras. The colors in your photos are so vibrant!

      Manisha – It is a delightful way to spend time, isn’t it? You’re right about film vs. digital – I’d be broke, ha. That creek photo is vibrant because the sky was reflecting in it – and it was a gorgeous blue sky. 🙂
