Grand Canyon Splendor

This or That Thursdays

Our recent road trip through the Southwest yielded a veritable treasure of stunning scenery to photograph. I remember my first trip to the Grand Canyon with our kids.  I was totally taken back and filled with emotion as I caught my first glimpse of her spectacular beauty.  Some places on this earth defy words, and surely this canyon is one.

Who can really capture the beauty of the Grand Canyon...I tried...


And tried...


But Dave won the contest...

  2. All three are beautiful photographs that I'd be proud to take credit for, but that last one is a marvel!

  7. Hi Laurel, I think the perspective in your shots are better...it looks like Dave added saturation and ran his shots through a filter or two...you could do the same for yours and it might sharpen them and add back some of the color that bright sunlight washes away in photos. Just a thought. I've never seen the grand canyon...one dAY....
