Journey of a body on this earth

Perspective

60 Comments

One thing I found completely amazing while overlooking The Grand Canyon is that people would walk right out onto the ledges and rocks.  There are no fences (thank god) or anything to stop them.   If you look at the first image, you’ll see the people on the rocks.  Crazy!  No thanks, I’ll wave from a distance, lol.

The second shot is of a couple sitting on the edge of the rocks.  I thought they looked so cute.  Maybe they were on their honeymoon.  I should’ve gotten their email address so I could send them this picture.  Who knows…maybe they will see it someday.  🙂

  1. Beautiful images Laura!

    Tamara

  2. I am glad there are no fences to spoil that natural beauty of the scene but since I have a crippling fear of heights it makes me feel entirely queasy to see anyone close to the edge. When I was there – all the way back in 2000 – my husband and his brother pretended to fall off the edge (there was actually a ledge below) and I was very much not amused. It may be some time before I take my boys (aged 5, 8, 9 and almost 12) to see the Grand Canyon for just that very reason – they will delight in freaking me out.

  3. Absolutely Breathtakingly Beautiful Laura!

  4. Beautiful shots, Laura! It’s often the unbalanced people who (ironically) hang out at the edge… thinking that they have balance and poise! 😉

  5. Beautiful captures, Laura! 🙂

  6. Love to see more of your trip to the Grand Canyon Laura! 😉

  7. Stunning shots as always and really love the couple one! 🙂

  8. I guess that means you didn’t walk on the overlook that takes you a bit past the canyon rim. 🙂

  9. Amazing beautiful Laura 😀

  10. love the hat.
    i don’t think i would go the the edge either.

  11. Wonderful pictures, Laura. Keep ’em coming.

  12. What a breath taking place and for more reason that the beauty-that s way to high of this old broad. Love the couple sitting on the edge.

  13. Wonderful pics! I’m scared of heights .. No way I could do that! Phew ..

  14. Amazing!!
    I think I would wave from the distance too 😀

  15. Not being scared of heights I love to get out there on the very edge, what views one gets to see… ;love the photos…

  16. Another great pair of images, Laura. Excellent framing on the image of the couple.

  17. I love to take pictures of people and then send it to them. There’s a joy in being the unplanned photographer that capture the adventure. Nice job with the picture of the couple!

  18. Gorgeous photos. I’m with you though . . . I’ll keep a little distance between me and the edge. I’m not sure-footed enough to not slip and fall.

  19. Gorgeous Laura, truly wonderful images of an unforgettable place!
    I also wanted to let you know that my blog has changed. I lost all my content and followers during a transfer. If you would still like to follow me, my new blog address is: west517photos.wordpress.com
    🙂

  20. I love and trust my husband 190%, but his hand on my back, at the edge of a cliff?……never gonna happen! That’s assuming you could get me to the edge of a cliff in the first place.

    I loved seeing all your photos from this trip…absolutely GORGE…OUS (pun intended) 🙂

  21. Wonderful shots, Laura. It would be neat if the couple could see the picture one day. But I’m sure they treasure the memory of that lovely spot.

  22. more spectacular and love on the edge!!

  23. Oh I love the photo of the couple together 🙂 Very tender!

  24. oh i LOVE the grand canyon, it ist just amazing and one of the most beautiful things i’ve ever seen. i sat there too, it only looks dangerous from behind as there is a path below (as far as i remember 🙂 )

  25. Wonderful photos Laura, as usual. I guess those folks who dance on the edge of a cliff aren’t familiar with the danger…. 🙂

  26. Both are fantastic but for me there is so much about the 1st one I love. The colour and depth to this photo is marvellous and the clarity does this so much justice. You’ve done a great job capturing the scale of the grand canyon.
