Greens

Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah
Bryce Canyon National Park, Utaha.trail.in Bryce Canyon--see the person?
somewhere in Utah.  I love the layers of various green colors in this landscape.

Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona, North Rim.  A storm is coming up.

These are a few of my favorite photos from a trip to Utah in the late Summer of 2010.  I love the colors in all of them.  Some landscapes show stark vibrant contrasts--azure blue sky, sandy orange-red rock, vibrant forest green foliage, perhaps even a puffy white cloud.  Others have muted shades and layering of colors.

  5. Pretty pictures of green. I wonder if we are going to have much green around here with the drought and heat we experienced this summer.
