Grand Canyon Trip




My family with some friends took a trip at the southern rim of the Grand canyon in Arizona late last week and here's a couple of photos I took from that "grand" experience. Because of the epic size and scale of the place (fig. 1) the background always looks like a flat painted billboard on a lot of my photos (fig. 2 & 3). The whole place was such an awesome sight to see.

Wow, nice photos! It totally looks like backdrop paintings or a BG shot from "Cars":). In fact, right when your blog loaded I was thinking WHAT! For a second there I thought you had made some "grand" painting until I realized it was a photo. It's really beautiful and I bet no photo or painting can do it justice. Just one of those things you have to experience for yourself. I'm definitely gonna make an effort to go there on my way to Cali, when that day comes.

Thanks for sharing and have a splendid day:)

This is such a beautiful place. It's a strange thing to see something that grand. Every picture is beautiful, but still there is a spark that is lost. The feeling of being surrounded all the way around you is pretty breath taking. I visited here when I was looking at schools, way back when. I've not forgotten it or a smaller place called Sodona. WOW! Pretty powerful landscapes.

It's a nice thing to feel small sometimes.

Last time I was in Arizona, it was pouring rain so we didn't get to see the Grand Canyon but we did see Sedona. I have to go again soon. You took some really nice pictures.
