Q: Story of the week

A: Do you know?

I sat in the front seat of the helicopter during our tour of the Grand Canyon.....

Thought I needed a different entry for the Photo challenge, since they changed the name from Bird's eye view to "from above"

    I like this a lot Maurie, especially how you kept that sky out of the shot. That certainly helped the exposure. Nice one.
