A long ridge of red rock in front of huge buttes rising from the canyon floor dominate the landscape as seen from the south rim of the awesome Grand Canyon in the state of Arizona, USA. Layers of colour and strata carved and shaped over centuries by water.

This image is beautiful not just for the rugged terrain that it captures so well, but also for the vivid colors that make the landscape.

Nice view of the Grand canyon with amazing sharp details aided by the bright light. Great detailing on the textures of the rock on the ridge. A spectacular shot, thanks for sharing.

What a contrast in tone between foreground and background, quite fantastic. You have framed the shot perfectly to take advantage of this. Lighting and colours are superb as are the textures to be discerned in the rock strata.

Superb vibrancy, Brian! The rusty reds and greens and background hues are dramatic - perfect!
All the best,

Fabuleux paysage une fois encore remarquablement photographié par tes soins.

Red ridge, where...I don't see it!? You'd have to be Stevie Wonder not to recognize this spot! I would dare guess this is likely the first view most everyone see's when they hit the rim...and one that's easily burned into the 'ol memory bank! Such a distinct ridge, and seemingly more colorful than the rest. Great layered effect with this panoramic cut, suited perfectly for this wall of rustic beauty. Mother Nature sure did some great work here...now, if she'd just take care and water it more often! :) Bright, sharp, and textured sublimely. Awesome! Be good, keep yourself out of trouble today.

Hi again Brian
I really like the tight crop here. You created a surreal abstract with beautiful colours and patterns. Brilliant work.
