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!

Superbe vue aérienne sur cette côte déchiquetée, la lumière redessine le paysage, très bonne netteté, bravo !

WOW! This is a truly striking image and of exceptionally high quality considering that it has obviously been taken through the window of a 'plane.
The light here is amazing and it has brought out all the details of the edges of the lake superbly. We see the rough and sharp cliffs surrounding the lake near to us but, farther away, the land appears muc "softer", sloping more gradually into the water.
Glorious light and colours, perfect composition and exposure and stunning details and sharpness.

spectacular view form the air! Well focused up to the horizon and nicely framed which probably wasn't that easy considering circumstances. Great colors!
Thanks for sharing

Wonderful and impressive!
Especially the lower half of the picture with the capricious banks looks fantastic.
Best regards, Paul

Not so easy to take aerial picture from a plane but the look is very good in low altitude
Very great place

This is a beautiful aerial scene you have photographed. The details are very sharp and composition is attractive. The curve of the river in the distance makes me want to see how far it goes! Well done.
