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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
