We did a helicopter tour over the West Rim, and I captured the forms of the land. Love the shapes and forms.

I am a huge fan of Yann Arthus-Bertrand photographer for his aerial photos and wanting to preserve nature. Here I had the chance to fulfill one of my dreams in doing aerial photography of the forms of the landscape.
Just a bit of sharpening a tad of adjustments in selective colour of red and yellow channel to bring it exactly as I’ve seen it, all in Camera Raw 6.2.
