365 Snap Shots of Life Blog Challenge: Day 53

The Grand Canyon

This is one of several shots I took of The Grand Canyon when I was there in 1998. The most amazing thing I discovered while I was there in the late afternoon, is that no matter where you stand, you feel tiny. I had never seen so many hues pop out all over,out of seemingly nowhere . The grand canyon defies description. I’m going to be so bold to use one word in a feeble attempt to describe it  : CAPTIVATING.

365 Snap Shots of Life Blog Challenge: Day 43

In December of 2008 a wonderful thing happened…it snowed where I live. I am not a big fan of snow. However, given the fact that I live in the desert,  it made the rare weather occurance feel almost magical. Had this happened back in Atlanta where I lived 11 years ago, I wouldn’t have even taken picture. But snow in the desert… brought out the little kid in me. What a day that was! At one point late at night, I went outside and the whole neighborhood resembled something eerie almost like a scene right out of  Steven King‘s THE SHINING.

Looking back on this photo reminds me how glad I am to live where I do. Moments like these are few and far in between and that’s how I like snow to be for me.

Have a great Sunday everyone 🙂
