Time to go back to the top by helicopter! Let's leave the place where we stayed for some enjoyable moments!

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!

Quel impressionnant paysage bien pris avec cette vue plongeante, les détails des parois rocheuses sont parfaitement rendus, belle tonalité avec cette bonne capture de la luminosité.

A famous place presented in a good frame. I like the result. Congratulations!

that is a wonderful view of the river with great framing. The colours are great with their appeal enhanced by the warm golden light. Beautiful details in the mountains. The tiny speeding boat is a lovely detail. Thanks for sharing and have a great Sunday.

Hi Neyvan.Well, you definitely explored this wonderland with a lot of energy and passion. Incredible landscape where men and boats are smaller than ants- so majestic is the place. Excellent sharpness and exposure. Well done. Regards. Klaudio.

this is very classic and pretty composition in all its simplicity. The river cutting through the canyon adds some diversity in the landscape and the tiny boat caught right in the middle of it catches an eye. Very well chosen POV and lovely natural colors.
I like it!
PaulVDV (31949) 2014-03-08 13:51
You've certainly seen the Grand Canyon from all directions and in all ways.
The landscape is extremely majestic and it becomes even more impressive once we've discovered the boat and the car. They give us a perfect idea of the scale.
I didn't know the Colorado River looked so muddy.
Best regards, Paul

Fine view of the Colorado River and the Grand Canyon west of Hoover Dam. Even here the Canyon continues to be deep and majestic, exhibiting the sedimentary layers carved through by the Colorado over the millennium.
In my youth I rafted the Grand Canyon from Lee's Ferry below Lake Powell to Lake Mead behind Hoover Dam, with a week long guided trip. It was fantastic and I would recommend it to everyone.
Thanks for sharing,

Helicopter can certainly show some unforgettable angles of the Grand Canyon. This has good perspective, and the scale of the landscape can be estimated of that little boat on the river. Stripy appearance of different ground layers is also very clear.

magnificent capture of this wild landscape
perfectly executed postcard remitted
to all of us
the colors are great with their appeal
enhanced by the warm golden light
