Bright Angel by Rhavethstine Bright Angel by Rhavethstine
Man, it's almost been a year since I've submitted anything. Been slacking, dealing with life, etc.

Shot from the rim after hitting plateau point earlier in the day.

Ooooh, Some much good texture here! The canyons below help give the eyes something to follow to the far edges of the photo, and the green trees are an awesome addition to the wealth of colors and textures already available from the rock.

Wonderful shot.

This is just jaw dropping! Does somebody live in that house up there? Wow.. amazing picture! Technique is perfect!

Thanks! That's the old Kolb Brother's studio on the edge of the canyon. They were pioneer photographers of the canyon back in the day. It is owned by the park service now, I believe. Serves as a gallery and tourist attraction nowadays. It's got a killer view though. :)

Heh, no houses in the Canyon (unless you count deserted Indian ruins). :D That's the Kolb Studio, a park owned gallery on the edge of the canyon.

It took a while, but I finally saw that little road down in the center. wow does that make the sense of scale impressive

An excellent shot, could use a little tiny bit more detail in the bottom left corner, it's slightly too dark.

Yeah, that's the trail out to Plateau Point you see down there. It seems to be getting more defined with each passing year.

I agree. The next time I open this image for a print I'll see if I can coax any more details out of that corner. Thanks!

WOW! There are many photos of the Grand Canyon and it is such a beautiful place that one can hardly go wrong to get a good picture. This one, though, is great! the colors are extraordinary and the angle is priceless. There is so much depth to this photo. BRAVO!

Initially, from the thumb, it seemed a little dark - but on full view, you really get to see all the details, and oh my gosh, you've captured them so well. All the way up the valley in the background and everything. Beautiful colours in the sky and the hues over the canyon are fantastic.

Very nicely done.

well I already commented on this and honestly I am not sure I am able to critique something that is perfect, it is hard let alone almost impossible James. Seriously I can NOT think of a thing to better this shot.

Heh, well enough. Have a relatively new nephew to help take care of that cuts into the evening outings for photos, but I'm starting to get back into the swing of things.

You should come out during the monsoon season. So many dramatic skyscapes to choose from. :D

Nice... good to hear your getting back in the swing :)

Sounds so tempting... I really need to get out there again soon and at least get a couple good days of hiking in, never been during monsoon season and always have wanted to... I bet the skies rock!

Is this Grand Canion????
P.s. I would get rid of the frame, or get a smaller one.

Yes, this is the Grand Canyon. I'll have to play around with other frames/no frame and see what works. :)

You put some effort into walking the rim to chose this framing. Including the Kolb Brothers' Studio, the start of the Bright Angel Trail, the Plateau Point tipoff and the distant North rim all add up to a very nice image.

The ending of the day comes across poignantly with the richness of light and color in the foreground, and the light and colors fading as the eye descends into the inner canyon.

Very good work.

Hobbling the rim might be a better description of what I was doing at the time. ;) It's been awhile since I've pulled a 12+ mile trip in the canyon. Thanks for the keen observations!

That's the Kolb Brothers studio, which was founded as a photographic studio back in the early 1900s. Today, it hosts a variety of photographic displays and is more of a tourist attraction and gallery. It's definitely a building with a view, whatever its function. Thanks for checking stopping by!
