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.

Since joining RB I’ve greatly enjoyed being part of a lovely community of wonderful people. I’ve also made some new friends that I hope to meet one day in person. I have several passions/hobbies/professions (music, photography, martial arts & yes environmental engineering to name a few)! I am very blessed being able to work in all of these. Please feel free to visit & provide honest opinion on my photos as I am still learning (a day that goes by without learning anything is a wasted day).

    Wow…Beautiful, words can not describe how one feels as they gaze at this vision…wow…i am thrilled that you stayed the extra hour and captured this vision…beautiful and well worth the dangling over the bridge…i know it takes patience to wait, and an hour can seem like a long time…but the results are stunning! Well Captured Hany!

    My dear Hany……………..now, the colours here are stunning……………………….again I can feel the heat……………….I am trying to figure out what the stonework is in the bottom left corner……..it looks like a ledge where you could sit and meditate on the surrounding beauty………………I hope it was silent………………it looks silent……………just gorgeous…………..I love it………………..from your lover of peaceful surroundings in Ireland…………………Joyce!!

  • My dear, dear Joyce…… my apologies for the late response on all your recent visits and wonderful comments…… as you know I am preparing for this visit to the City of Ottawa on the weekend for a 3-day conference……. and I am doing too many last minute arrangements…… and here I am… I’d rather be spending time here on RB with my friends………….. that stonework in the bottom left hand corner of the image is a sheer drop of about 80 ft below the edge of the ridge……… which is an additional 400 ft below the bridge’s main structure……. I am sure it would be very silent and quite peaceful by then……… yes it does look very gorgeous…… and I promise you the net time I go visit, I will be exploring ways of getting down to the bottom other than bungee jumping…….. from your very grateful and thankful friend who also happens to be a peace advocate…….. Hany
