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 - # 113 !
LET'S FLY FROM BOULDER CITY TO THE GRAND CANYON'S WEST RIM !
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 were all about to get on board for the second part of that fabulous tour!

This pic brings out the love of the unknown - what you are about to see, which you have not seen before. The feeling is great, I can understand.
Loved the colors.

And no doubt very expensive:-) But, hey it's a once in a lifetime opportunity! The shot is very well composed and full of life. Perfect technical presentation.

When we fly about an unknown area and can make pictures is the trip completely successfully.
Really a very good technical picture also wonderful colours.
The airplane and waiting people care for a wonderful composition.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

WOW! That sounds like some trip! How long did that take you to do all that trip? It must have been brilliant and I'll bet that you took lots of photographs throughout the tour.
And here we see groups of passengers waiting in anticipation to board their little 'plane to take them away on the tour, a lovely photograph with good composition and excellent light and colours. And, of course, we're with the photographer here too - just waiting in line at the beginning of a wonderful adventure!

I've never been on such small plane, a little bite scary to me. But I would imagine the view above the
Grand Canyon from air is breathing. It's a very interesting picture. Thanks for sharing.

Flying with small planes like this is really flying. There's a great experience waiting for these people and they lined up very nicely in front of your camera. Or rather, you placed yourself very well. Your composition is perfectly balanced and well cropped, colors are great and the clarity is superb.

Great to see that classic Twin Otter with extra big window to show best possible views of the Grand Canyon. I can well imagine the excitement while waiting the sightseeing flight. Good close and wide angle.

Nice capture ! I think it's a Fokker. My favorite flyer once upon a time, as you had allways the sight free.
TFS and best regards

La présences des passagers ajoutent de la vie à la scène. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du DHC-6-300 de la compagnie Scenic Airlines. La bonne luminosité valorise les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

I have visited the Canyon twice: once from the north once from the south but I could never afford the flight so I am glad I can see your detailed reportage about this trip, I will have something to dream about, it must have been an unforgettable experience!
Thanks for sharing,

eu nunca andei numa avião assim, acredito que teria medo, pois esses troços devem balançar e muito! Curti o enquadramento, a moça vestida de seleção brasileira ficou em destaque na foto devido as cores da roupa.

ho un contrasto di emozioni in ricordo ad il mio volo su l'ultraleggero del Gran Canyon!
Un misto di paura, nausea, meraviglia, gioia!
In questa composizione ottima padronanza dei colori della luce e della nitidezza!
