On the way to Rainbow Bridge - Lake Powell

Here are some pictures taken on my boat tour to the Rainbow Bridge (a large sandstone arch) on Lake Powell. This was my last day in this area of Arizona and I'm so glad I spent it on the water. I look forward to capturing the spirit of this incredible area in paint!


The colours were delicate and soft in the early morning light and created a special beauty around every turn. The strong sandstone formations were a wonderful contrast creating imagery from another world.

This picture was taken quite a distance from the Rainbow Bridge. The snow capped mountain in the background added to the incredible beauty of this area.


It's hard to tell from these photos but the Rainbow Bridge spans more than 270 feet at the base and is 290 feet high, and is the world's largest natural bridge. The arch has been carved after years of water rushing through below from Navajo Mountain as it makes its way to the Colorado River. 

I do love to discover the natural beauty of this incredible world of ours!!

I'm off now to spend some quality time with my daughter and family in the Niagara Region of Southern Ontario where it is apple blossom time!! Photos to follow soon~
