As I truly didn't know it could me the one and only time over there, I decided to take the most complete tour over the Grand Canyon nearby Las Vegas!
First a van from Las Vegas to Boulder City. Second a flight from Boulder City to the GRAND CANYON'S WEST RIM. After that, a helicopter flight over that NATURAL WONDER, going down to the COLORADO RIVER! There, a boat ride! Then, a flight back to the edges of the Canyon to visit some places, such as the Grand Canyon Skywalk with some lunch served over there! Finally, all the way back to Las Vegas by plane and van again! It was certainly totally worthwhile and very enjoyable!
"IN BRAZIL, these days, we're having CARNIVAL (CARNAVAL)! Today, I only have good memories of those parties, when I was a child and a teenager and I really enjoyed the "dancing balls" we had in a club, in VILA DOS OPERADORES, a small village we used to live in! For children, in the afternoon, for adults, at night! I miss all the music (some of them we don't have anymore during these days - yes, they're old fashioned!) I miss the bands, confetti & "serpentina", whistles & colorful plastic hammers, masks & fantasies, dancing around that large room I used to love so much, without thinking about anything, just about how much I loved all that, even the hot weather! I miss the soft drinks I used to have to get some refreshment and the swimming-pool we all went to after all that dancing! Or even taking a bike ride, so happily, before going back home! It's been a while I don't do any of those things anymore! Not even Carnaval in Rio I watch on TV! I usually go to my parents's place or stay home, just resting! This year, I'm even studying! In between, other memories about what I mostly enjoy doing come up to my mind: TRAVELING! And I dream, I dream A LOT about my next adventures! Yes, many brazilians still enjoy CARNAVAL, but many don't and find other things to do during these days!"

Hello Ney! A beautifully compressed perspective of the Grand Canyon here, showing the striations and colors nicely; almost like a jar of sediment separating into different bands. Thanks for the interesting perspective!

a shot that shows us the amazing majesty and textures of this TE favourite. So much clarity and tonal colouring to admire here. Wonderful!

this is spectacular place and you captured lovely its beauty. This tight framing makes one focus on the unusual structure of the rocks and helps to highlights all the details. Great colors, properly saturated, yet still natural. Very good sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

A wonderful overview of the different rock layers and an excellent testimony of the extreme erosion process.
An extremely impressive sight!
Best regards, Paul

The images of the Grand Canyon are always a pleasure viewing, in this case the composition is superb, presenting us great horizontal strata of this wonder of nature, great textures and color tones of the rocks.
Very good brightness and sharpness.
Well seen and done better. I Like
Have a good day.

Fantastique les détails des roches, l'harmonie des couleurs, bel effet 3D , très belle réalisation

A fabulous sight, Neyvan, like an opened Geology book.
The multi-layers rocks in red/brown texture is wonderfully shown, impressive and intriguing nature.
Fine outlines, clarity and light managed from the air.

Looks wonderful. I have been to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon so I can appreciate the massive scale even though there are no buildings cars or people in the shot which is not necessarily a bad thing! On the contrary it gives the image a wild and unspoiled look. Tfs!

An intriguing view, the rocks are impressive.
I like frame and colors.

essas camadas de rocha na horizontal e os precipícios na vertical criam um efeito visual bacana, parece até uma miragem. bem bonita a foto.
