    Very, very awesome image Christina. Love the glow on these cliffs in the foreground. And those layers; ahhhh; AWESOME. Fantastic. Hope to see more of your images. I would like to know what I missed (LOL). Thank you for sharing with us.

  • Thanks for your lovely comments Hany. I know you have had some fantastic times and shots in the Grand Canyon and I was so glad that you shared them. I had a brilliant time. We flew over and I sat in the co-pilot seat in the front and we landed and spent several hours there. I was blown away with the size and beauty and especially loved being there at sunset and flying back to see the lights of Las Vegas in the night. Awesome time and memories forever.

    I love that cliff face, especially the rich orange colour.

  • Thanks for your lovely comments Michael, the cliff face was just glowing from the sunset. It was an awesome experience being at the Grand Canyon.

    Christina, Very well done. Very nice change from the usual view of the canyon so often seen.

  • Thank you Bob for your wonderful comments and for the fave. The Grand Canyon is just so impressive and I especially wanted to be there for the sunset.

    This is a superbly captured bit of the canyon! Colour and texture are fascinating.

  • Thank you Bette for your wonderful words. Before I went over to America another RedBubbler, Hany Jadaa, was over there and he advised me to go there for a sunrise or sunset …. and that proved to be excellent advice and helped with the colour of the rocks. We took a little plane out to the Grand Canyon, I got to sit with the pilot and take photos from the air and also landed and spent a number of hours there right up to sunset, then flew back to see the night lights of Vegas. Wonderful stuff.
