Series on my trip to the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA) - NORTH AMERICA - Visiting LAS VEGAS, LAKE MEAD, HOOVER DAM, RED ROCK CANYON and the VALLEY OF FIRE (NEVADA), the GRAND CANYON - WEST AND SOUTH RIMS (ARIZONA), BRYCE CANYON, RED CANYON and ZION CANYON (UTAH), the DEATH VALLEY (CALIFORNIA) and finally CHICAGO (ILLINOIS) - From APRIL 05th to 24th, 2012 - # 115 !
ALL ON BOARD: LET'S FLY FROM BOULDER CITY TO THE GRAND CANYON'S WEST RIM ! WILL IT FLY ????
Down there: BUCHANAN BOULEVARD !
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 this picture we had just taken off and we could already see Boulder City from a different point of view! Excitement! The Adventure's just started! Aprehension! I could feel it in the air! I bet in everyone's minds there was a question: Will it fly???

Nice roads, with a touch of green.
Very neat snap from a moving plane.

Belle vue aérienne sur cette impressionnante ligne droite. On a hâte de voir la suite de tes photos aériennes du Grand Canyon!

very good air photo! The road running between rows of houses creates eye catching contrast and leads an eye through the picture. Well framed and with natural colors.
Well given contrast and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing!

Spectacular panorama, I like this image with the impressive boulevard. Good catch!

Superb bird view of beautiful LV housing area. The arrangement with the straight road leading to the brown mountains with green and hosing places on both sides is excellent, the light and clarity perfect.
Very well done
Wish you a very nice rest of the week.

Ola dear Ney
hehehe, the question I ask myself every time I get in a plane :) Beautiful vertical frame, excellent colours, I especially like the natural and well saturated red tones and of course the roadway that leads the eye further into the frame. Excellent work.
Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful day.

Well framed aerial shot of a small town on the edge of a desert. That road makes a strong perspective. It's interesting to see how well arranged those residential areas are. You are building up excitement, I want to see how your pictures from above the canyon look like!
Well,of course it flew! But smaller planes tend to be more noisy and shaky, don't they.

a perfect aerial shot this. A superb linear perspective and an image full of amazing clarity and detail. Execution flawless and a fascinating presentation. Well done! Love the solitary little yellow car too!

The view through the plane window has an adverse effect on the tonal contrast which can't really be avoided. Nevertheless, the view is very impressive and the strip of road, running straight as a die toward the mountains, gives the scene immense depth.

Wouwwwwwwww, espero que todo lo que cuentas lo hayas hecho a lo largo de varios dias, seria extenuante en uno solo
Impresionante la ruta ( muy bien capturada) que cruza el desierto con la vista de las casas
Buen marco y me gusta el detalle de mostrar parte del avion arriba a la derecha
Buen trabajo y captura aerea

An unexperience pilot can mistake this strait road as a runway, Neyvan, happened several years ago in Israel. A known company's medium-size passangers plane was about to land on No.1 highway, Tel-Aviv-Jerusalem autostrada that is parallel to the runway - but more than one km appart. Nothing happened - last minute alerted by the flight controller in the tower.
Anyway, beautiful how the road stretchs to far side of the valley, adorned by green park alongside, like a desert oasis.
Fine taken from aloft,
