Wonderful picture for a wonderful place, the colors are bright and the cloudy sky give the dimension of this hudge canyon.

Hello Brian,your imaginative composition, with the use of the FG rocks and trees to give the shot lots of depth and interest, has resulted in the most spectacular of views making an equally spectacular photograph.
With gorgeous colours and pin sharp detail it`s a stunning shot.
All the best Les.

A fine capture of this magnificent and awe-inspiring landscape. The stormy sky sits well over the contoured valley. The image has immense depth and benefits from very good colours and clarity.

What's more, otherwise superb.
One begins to regret the small image size and compression not possible to assess their fair values fine details and colors.

Exquisite detail in this shot Brian and you have presented a wonderfully moody feel here. The sky is a strong feature with the storms in the distance and the contrasting brightly lit clouds. Top class in every way. Warm regards Rosemary

queste tue del Grand Canyon sono una più bella dell'altra, sia perchè il soggetto è imponente e già bello di suo, sia per la bella tecnica che hai utilizzato nel riprendere questo soggetto mettendo in evidenza la luce calda che illumina la roccio ed il cielo azzurro e ricco di belle nuvole che le sovrasta.
Un insieme meraviglioso ripreso in maniera divina.
Ciao e buona serata

I must say, you've done justice to the Grand Canyon with these photo's, another beauty here! The colors coming out of this are amazing...wish it looked this good flying over at 30,000ft/9km. :) Not only are the colors of the canyon itself impressive, it's the rendering in the sky that really sets the tone here...we could sure use some of those storms about now!? You've been able to convey the vast grandeur of this place, the depth and detail are superb! Thanks for sharing another view, hope to see more.
All the best,
Enjoy that heat wave of 25C, I'll gladly trade places if it's too much! :) Take care.

Majestueuse photo de ce lieu qui ne l'est pas moins. Superbe ciel et splendide maîtrise de la lumière.

One word: beautiful!
One advice: printed out and framed it in.

Although this was taken two years ago, sometimes I just wonder exactly how many pictures you took during that visit to Arizona! But I shall never tire of looking at them - each and every one is a true stunner!
Again, the characterful sky is a perfect topping for this beautiful image of the Grand Canyon which you have composed perfectly. The light is sublime, bringing out all the wonderful details from the nearest foreground to as far as the eye can see.
Gorgeous light and colours, perfect composition and exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

This is a really beautiful place and I like your pov and the quality of the photo. Good idea to include the trees in foreground. Light, colours are just great and you had a wonderful sky also. Very good work!
AROBN54 (11473) 2013-08-20 23:24
What a madly gorgeous photo!
the green foliage in contrast to the red rocks, that amazing sky, the light and shadow on the far canyon walls, clear sharp detail, no noise and you can see to forever.... Oh, my. That is definitely a shot to be glad YOU made... Dang
Seriously, that is a MAD shot, thanks,
(Beware it ending up on some advertising site without your knowledge - It's that good)

This is an amazing capture! The depth of field is outstanding with the foreground rocks and trees adding nice depth to the scene. The lighting and color is nice as is the photo's sharpness.
