This week’s Foto Friday Fun features images chosen by seven readers from my photo files including several shots of monsoon at Grand Canyon which I hope portends monsoon’s arrival.
Mary Lou chose #6578. I would caption this shot of the turkey vulture, “Go ahead, make my day!” Because of a cross-stitch project I did of this kind of image and that saying as a present for a retiring college professor. Don’t ask me any more than that.
Diane and Nigel chose #7779. Warthogs really get a bad rap and are interesting to watch their family dynamics. I saw so many warthogs in Addo Elephant National Park on my first visit I was sure South African National Parks had misnamed the place.
Jodee and Bill chose #2626. Everybody has seen photos of Grand Canyon under clear blue skies but the canyon is most mysterious when inversion of clouds settles in. Slipping in and out around temples and buttes reveals islands in this sea of mist. This special treat occurred during Gayle and Jim’s visit last June.
Patti chose #8629. Yet another view of low clouds, this time near sunset over Transept Canyon through my RV windows on 9-27-14. A little soft and blurry but I like it. Ah, the many moods of Grand Canyon.
Donna chose #97. A diorama of chachkies in my old 5th-wheel where I actually had more space to display stuff than the newer bigger unit. Think of the dust as velvet. Unfortunately the perfume bottles and fabulous egg where in my storage shed and burned in the Yarnell Fire. Lots of sad loss but for me just stuff and I’ve accepted lightening my lode.
My choice is a first try at photographing the Milky Way taken from the Grand Lodge. You can see the lights on the South Rim and the string of red lights from the Perrin Ranch Wind farm beyond. Next month during new moon I’d like to try again.

Do you have a favorite this week? For me it’s a toss up between the glory and Milky Way at Grand Canyon.
