This is the next image of the breathtaking Marble Canyon and the Colorado River, taken about a couple of hours after my first image (titled very cleverly “Marble Canyon – 1”). By examining the two images, you can see the difference in the light and its effect on the canyon walls and the Vermillion Cliffs in the distant background. Very impressive to say the least (and I am not talking about my photo either).
Some additional info for those of you who are travel enthusiasts and info buffs; Marble Canyon essentially marks the beginning of the Grand Canyon towards the Northern Rim. The mighty Colorado River flows from a point known as Lee’s Ferry in northern Arizona to the confluence with the Little Colorado River, and this marks the beginning of the Northern Section of the Grand Canyon.
I really wanted to get down to the canyon floor and the river bed (and bungee jumping from the Navajo Bridge was not an option). So, I took a detour towards Lee’s Ferry. Images from that point are coming to a screen near you pretty soon.
Hope you like this one too.
