Wow, you got the moon in some of your shots! Great work. I would love to be able to do that.

Very breath taking views, and everything looks grandiose to me. I see the moon rising as the song goes.

Oh I'm so envious. I have never seen the sunset nor sunrise in grand canyon. Those are all wonderful captures.

These are stunning Denise!
I have yet to make it to the Grand Canyon. I sure hope I do someday.
One must feel very small standing there and looking out. :)

Gorgeous...I have to go to the Grand Canyon, everyone always seems to be tempting me with photos!
Yes, the Banksy exhibition was in Bristol, his hometown. We only stayed there for one night, and I have to say I wasn't overwhelmed by the city. It was very hard to find out any tourist information, and there didn't seem to be very much within the city to see. So probably won't be going back. But at least, after three years of regularly stopping at Bristol Temple Meads on my way to uni in Wales I can say I've actually been there.

Denise: I never tire of seeing photos of the Canyon. These bring back memories of my time there last Spring. Certainly makes one feel insignificant standing next to this wonder!Have a great weekend!
