The Grand Canyon (Hopi: Ongtupqa; Yavapai: Wi:kaʼi:la) is a steep-sided canyon carved by the Colorado River in the United States in the state of Arizona. It is contained within and managed by Grand Canyon National Park, the Hualapai Tribal Nation, and the Havasupai Tribe. President Theodore Roosevelt was a major proponent of preservation of the Grand Canyon area, and visited it on numerous occasions to hunt and enjoy the scenery. It is considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. The Grand Canyon is 277 miles (446 km) long, up to 18 miles (29 km) wide and attains a depth of over a mile (6,000 feet / 1,800 metres) (From Wikipedia)

Your winter Grand Canyon picture is way better than my summer ones, believe me. The sky was so clear in this photo. Wait until see mine.

Grand contrast on the Grand-Canyon, Eleu, as one side under snow blanket, while the far side desert view with it's typical colors.
Fabulous scenery, attractive location, well managed morning-light and shadows.

Desert and snow meet in a strange contrast in a good light. I like your framing with the dead tree branch.

Une vue inhabituelle du grand Canyon, cadrage bien pensé avec le premier plan et jolis contrastes entre neige et roche rouge.

This is lovely Eleu !
I have never seen the Grand Canyon under snow before !
Great contrast between the sunny slopes and the ones in the shade. What is the temperature in the sun and in the shade at this time of the year ?
Thanks for sharing this rather unusual capture.

The Grand Canyon is always wonderful! In winter, with that clear blue sky above and some snow around, it gets so interesting! Attractive picture too!
TFS - congrats,

Perfect weather for photographing this magnificent landscape Eleu. The crisp, clear air has afforded you excellent colour and depth and the snow lying in the FG adds some very attractive contrasts. Must be wonderful to see this in person. Have a lovely weekend Rosemary

A breath taking shot of this famous place, very clever and imaginative work nicely detailed in great light, textures and colors tones. Bits of shadow play is nice inclusion, with oatches of snow flakes, but the red color of the rocks adds as srtong focal. Fine work, Well done,
