Default A Few From Grand Canyon

Had a great vacation and the K5iis was perfect for travel.


I know it needs a horizon fix!

Each photo is a gem - full of carefully captured detail. Wonderful skies, fine handling of the wide dynamic range - thanks for sharing!

Beautiful photos of a spectacular area that I hope to see in person someday. Until that day comes, I'll have to be satisfied with fine photos like these.

Spectacular views - must have been a lovely holiday. What is the last shot ? I can't figure that one out unless it's some sort of a cave ceiling or a well !

thanks everyone. The last picture is the inside of the below tower that sits over a beautiful overview. It is a gift shop and has steps that takes you to the top of the tower for a great view of the canyon.



Another image from the inside.

Great shots, and you were blessed with great visibility and a few clouds. To bad I missed the gift shop that is a great image looking up.

Very cool shots! What dramatic weather you had there, love the pictures. Were all these taken from overlooks at the south rim? The tower looks like fun, too. Thanks for giving me ideas!

yes, all of these are from the South Rim. The tower is at the east end entrance of the s rim. Well worth the drive over from the main visitor center to that view point.
