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!"

You certainly got the most out of your tour alright, and I'm glad you're sharing it with us, I love these elevated views! A great idea and composition for this shot, showing where the airport sits in relation to the canyon itself, and the sense of scale is outstanding. This really puts our miniscule size into perspective, yeah? :) Although it's still understood from ground level, this vantage point greatly enhances the layering detail of the canyon along with the subtle color changes. Impressive result from the air, not necessarily an easy thing to achieve. Bravo! Enjoy the new day. Take it easy.

Image fort intéressante, qui prend justement beaucoup de son intérêt dans la résolution et les détails que le plus grand format apportent. Intéressante comparaison des résultats obtenus via deux formats différents. Assez frappant en effet. Mais davantage plus grand j'apprécierais moins. J'utilise presque exclusivement la version béta de TE et je tends à moins m'arrêter sur les supers grands format où je ne peux voir qu'une partie de la photo à la fois (quoique sur une tablette ça se corrige rapidement, mais j'aime pas écrire là-dessus).
Meilleures salutations, Claude

Magnifique paysage où le relief crée de belles lignes horizontales et verticales. Une image d'une grande beauté. Salutations.

A most spectacular view with the canyon providing a perfect setting.Great shot.
Best regards Les.

Quelle vue fantastique sur le grand Canyon et la piste d'atterrissage au milieu de ce paysage sec et aride, excellente prise de vue, bonne lumière, très belle présentation

bem curiosa esta imagem com a pista de pouso ao lado do buracão do canyon. muito legal as camadas de rocha visíveis. ainda ontem num programa de tv escolheram o GC como a maior atração da américa do norte. vamos ver se verei o local este ano.
