I think this is Kolb art studio at left, with a few tourists admiring the view, to add scale. If not, I'll edit later. That's the Colorado River over 1 mile below. This section of the South Rim is around 7,000 feet above sea level. Clarity was good on the day I went. There are air quality measuring devices & photos on plaques that show you what the view should look like, depending on the amount of suspended dust particles & smoke in the air.

Even though framed horizontally we get the vertigo feeling watching this small house overlook the void, you have come pretty close to the cliff edge, nice image with superb colors
Have a nice day jY

This is an impressive scenery. The point of view leads my eyes toward the horizon which is giving depth to the composition. It is also alllowing me to see the details and colors of this area of the Grand Canyon. The quality of the light is enhancing the different tints of colors of the scenery. Have a nice day.

Yes, clarity is exceptional here, and you have a good POV, allowing to admire the whole depth of the canyon.

The inclusion of the house here gives a clear indication of the size of this canyon. A very sharp and fine picture and a pleasant reminder of our visit one year ago!

A beautiful picture. Nice, soft colours in a spectacular landscape. Once I was there too but I had bad luck, it was misty and raining.

voilà un endroit que je rêve de visiter un paysage impressionnant de grandeur de beauté sauvage, un POV excellent qui nous donne une superbe vue
ribeiroantonio (22637) 2009-11-03 16:14
Wow, this a wonderful view as well as it is a quite different POV of the Grand Canyon. I love the beautiful colours and the people giving a proper scale to the cliff. Well done.

Having just been here recently, and I still enjoy seeing photo of this place over and over and still not get enough of it, especially on of good quality. This is also very well composed with a good POV. The different layers of rock at various distance give a great sense of depth and perspective. Grat sharpness and good clarity, and beautiful and natural colors.

c'est grandiose bien évidemment et ta photo rend bien le fait que ce site soit classé comme une des merveilles naturelles du monde.
Les personnages donnent toute la dimension de ce rocher à l'avant plan et les couleurs si caractéristiques sont ici rendues avec beaucoup de fidélité.
Longroute (19394) 2009-11-04 1:52
Yes, the clarity is excellent and the photo is quite outstanding. I've never seen this canyon from this particular pov and I like how you show both rims and the river below. This gives a very good depth to the image which has a strong look of tridimensionality. The afternoon light gave you such lovely warm colours - my favourites!
An excellent work.
Nicou (119347) 2009-11-04 4:04
quel canyon, grandiose compo, cette roche rouge, avec le sommet complètement plat, cette immensité ce iel pur et limpide, un rêve, une merveille.
bravoe t amitié

I was yesterday on a exposition here in Flanders, about the Grand Canyons, with a lot pictures, all 1m x 60cm.
Three part picture through the nice different colours
The different layers of rock at various distance give a great sense of depth and perspective.
Sharpness and clarity are superb.
Great perspective and excellent realisation, pleasant for look at.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

I saw last Sunday a television program on the formation of this splendid geological site, it was very interesting. A point of view, once more, impressive on this canyon. I like much the quality of the image which enables us to see many details. Beautiful and interesting photograph, thank you Chris.
With all my friendships and with soon,

I still have a Pentx LX since 1981 and it's a good camera.
Very nice and deep composition and very good scan quality.
stego (23962) 2009-11-06 12:20
A known view, even if not the most known. certainly very beautiful, and you knew how to take profit of it to get a really great photo, clear, with colours very well rendered.

Great POV and a wonderful view at this canyon.
Great depth and good contrast between the yellow rocks at the left side and the red tones in the valley.
