I liked the snaking wall, in this shot of the Grand Canyon, in Arizona in the US south west. Ive dodged the hard shadow at right. This section of the canyon is around 7,000 feet above sea level, or over 2000 metres.
"Grand Canyon National Park  is a United States National Park and a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is located entirely in northern Arizona and is one of the great tourist attractions in the United States. There are two ways to approach the Canyon: the remote North Rim and the more accessible (and therefore more crowded) South Rim."

Beautiful spot to view the wonders of the Grand Canyon.
Rich textures and splendid colors to this lovely scene.

I use to remember that was not wall in many part of Grand Canyou, they are now popping up every where to protect ignorance people. I have see people go all the way to the edge to take picture with themself in it. One of them is my friend when he was younger. Anyway, it does looks like a giant snake, I have never see it that way until now. good color and light and nice compo. Thanks

Hi Chris. Great point of view. The snake wall is nice and you have put it in a good place. Nice colors and sharpness and contrast. A nice job. Have a nice day.

This is a well composed shot using the curving wall to lead the eye through the shot. The lighting is a little harsh but the photo still has good quality.
snunney (100656) 2010-03-04 3:51
You have made good use of this wall with its sinuous curves to frame the magnificent landscape beyond. I like the brown/yellow/red tones of wall and landscape and the contrast they make with the sky. Very good sharpness throughout.

Very good POV on the famous Grand Canyon.
Nice colours and good composition.
pierrefonds (67493) 2010-03-04 8:16
The rock wall leads my eyes toward the horizon which is giving depth to the composition. It is also allowing me to see the deatils and colors of the Grand Canyon. The nice blue sky is sending a light which is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

une photo similaire du coin de celle de saxo42, un paysage et des couleurs magnifiques qui meritent le détour, beau boulot

Good evening Chris,
Cheer for this foreground and this rattlesnake giant. The depth is thus given, with much clearness. Congratulations.
Have a good evening
Longroute (19396) 2010-03-04 11:01
Snaking... and diagonally!
It really gives depth and dynamicity to the image, and by contrast makes the sight of the canyon more real and incisive.
A great scenery and a fine photographic work.
npecanhuk (75592) 2010-03-04 12:56
The Grand Canyon... a place I'd love to visit! Maybe even go down to the Colorado River... lol
Ver attractive picture specially for the very well chosen pov and the original and beautiful composition!
TFS - congratulations!
hardyuno (4650) 2010-03-05 0:16
you've set the wall very fine in adaigonal way, that's good for the eyes to come into the picture.
The depth and contrasts are very good work. TFS
jemaflor (98771) 2010-03-05 4:43
Nice landscape of course ... with an original version, good idea to take in your composition this snake ... euh ! this wall ... Good light for colors.
jhm (154490) 2010-03-06 1:21
A pity I am no traveller, these environment with the rocky mountains is very intererest for a visit, wonderful moutains, splendid color.
Sharpness and clarity are excellent.
Perspective and composition are very good choice.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

From any place, this Grand Canyon is always impressive and also attractive. Good management of the luminosity accentuating the reliefs. On this view-point one must be hypnotized by this landscape, thank you Chris.
With all my friendships and a very good WE,
AiresSantos (56155) 2010-03-06 22:40
Hi dear Chris
Amazing shapes and colours in this fine picture from the famous Grand Canyon
Excellent sharpness and light management
Have a nice week
Royaldevon (39660) 2010-03-07 1:02
Having only seen this view on shots, I can imagine the emotions that it evokes in reality! It is amazing!!
Your composition, with f/g triangle, interestingly shadowed, securing the view into the distance, is excellent. A fine dof and good details.
Have a good day,
shevchenko (20548) 2010-03-07 19:08
Rarely to see the artificial wall from this famous tourism location, good frame to the winding wall and the Grand Canyon in the depth, good contrast of color between bright and dark site, distinct photo to show the arid land, well done.
siolaw (38292) 2010-03-08 0:22
I like the graphism of these eroded cliffs. Good colors and sharpness with a fine compo including the wall in foreground.

such an exciting view of this exciting place. The scenery is very wonderful.
you have composed it so pleasantly with lovely blue sky.
The canyon is well seen in good details.
serp2000 (44560) 2013-09-30 12:24
We were here couple of days ago, and I have got very fresh emotions after this trip to the Canyon. I also like your shot, you must to wait for only a few seconds without a crowd for similar picture. Not expensive price, isn't it?
Greetings from Phoenix!
