GRAND CANYON GRANDEUR!

2010.04.20
pixel
The enormity of the Grand Canyon srtikes you the moment you step to the canyon wall! Not surprising that it is one of the "Seven
Wonders of the Natural World"!
pixel
Some of the many incredible rock formations across the canyon, which is 12 miles wind and one mile deep!
pixel
I was terrified every time Larry walked over to the rim of the canyon because it was about 3000 feet straight down - and NO guard rails!
pixel
I just happened to turn around and catch this California condor in flight right over my head! Their wing span is about 5-6 feet!
pixel
Later, I saw another one floating over the canyon, but this one was a long way from me!
pixel
I liked this dead tree in the foreground, while the Colorado River looks like a small stream at the bottom of the canyon. A small trail makes it's way down to the river's edge.
pixel
The small white line is actually the hiking path down Bright Angel Trail, which is over 12 miles down and back to the top and usually requires two days to make the round trip.
pixel
We arrived at the Grand Canyon before noon, but it was such an overcast day, we couldn't catch the bright colors that the sun would have given us. However...it is more than magnificent! A lifetime of canyon photography could never capture it's glory! This is my humble attempt!

agandia Magnificent view, Congrats Brenda this set is so beautiful!!

????? One of my favorite places. You sad right, no foto can make justice to the beaty, and magnetism of this place. I really want to go down one day, I just need to find another crazy soul to do it with me. You so did so well, These a very impressive shots. They did turned out great. Very well done, Brenda :)

dontblink I've never been there but definately will one of these days. Amazing views and images.
dontblink · 2010-04-19: 21:51
atszabo I read some place that it is a sight that no photography could do justice to. I am thankful that I had once the opportunity to see it in person! Awesome place, indeed!
atszabo · 2010-04-19: 21:59
threepeas Spectacular photos! My husband is grumblingly envious that you saw a condor...that's a rare find! The canyon looks beautiful even in the overcast light!
threepeas · 2010-04-19: 22:42
RayNvb Lynn, these are just amazing. It must have been breathing taking by the looks of #1 and 3
RayNvb · 2010-04-19: 22:49
netterbutter I completely know what you mean! When I went there for spring break I definitely took around 200 pics in one morning at the grand canyon and none of them came close to actually experiencing it in person! I'm so glad you got to go! I think it's great that with just a 3 week difference in visits the landscape looks so different! I can't see a bit of snow in your shots when it was everywhere in mine and I love the green in #1. It's like a completely different place than what I visited. Great job Brenda!
netterbutter · 2010-04-19: 23:05
????? Wonderful photos Brenda. I love the views and colors ... never been ... maybe one day. tfs

BwannaDon Great shots Brenda, number one is magnificent... I like the muted colors. These exposures are superb.. bright sunlight would have brought with it the problem of dynamic range.
BwannaDon · 2010-04-20: 13:05
GKorts Gorgeous Brenda, up to today I never would have thought about Grand Canyon in combination with the color green. Seems that all the other photos you usually see are from late summer. Thanks for sharing, learnt something new today

catdad Tell Larry : First you get a really large raft (Kinda like a green with no sandtraps and drains to the cup", Throw away the titleists, get some callaways, and go for it, and don't 3 putt anything !! Eagle all the par 3's. It's kinda like that !! cd
catdad · 2010-04-21: 01:31
????? Fantastic! I've always wanted to go there.
????? · 2010-04-21: 18:59

lookwhatisaw Seeing those condors is a real honor. When I stare at the length of just one wing and wonder what the comparison would be like to see a "simple" hawk or eagle flying underneath. Your shot of the canyon and the enriched color went right into my favorites. It is like a mural of rich marble. Just beautiful Good work! Glorious.
