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.

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. :)

Thank you!
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!
