Stormy Tranquility...

2 DAYS UNTIL YORKFEST ART FESTIVAL 08

Hi everyone,

Sorry the post is a little late today. I spent most of my afternoon and evening removing the terrible XP Antivirus 2008 virus from my computer. What a pain in the you know what.

The image from today was ready as I had just re-processed it from its original processing to bring out more color and light for this weekends show.

Since I didn't have the energy to get something else ready last night I thought I'd post this and do Skywatch a day early (from when I normally do it). For those of you who don't know Skywatch Friday starts based on GMT and that means its still actually Thursday where I am. I'll still mostly post on Friday proper (York, PA)but occasionally you'll get any early one.

This image was shot on Memorial Day 2007 on the south rim of the Grand Canyon. I had just gotten to the park and secured the last available campsite on the whole south rim. I raced up to the rim and was able to catch this cool sunset.

It was a stormy sky but there was no storm, it remained quiet and peaceful.

The colors and sky are fantastic Brian. Does this image make up for missing last nights sun set?

It is starting to hurt like a son of a gun now. Glad he gave me pills.

Your photography is a treat for the eyes. Thanks so much for sharing. And glad you got rid of that awful virus.
