I made a visit to the Grand Canyon National Park in March of 2013. I have visited the park on numerous occasions and I’m always overwhelmed by its grandness. What a beautiful place! The canyon walls detail very well what lies below our feet. The colored layers showcase the various minerals that make up the geological formations in this area. The canyon, carved for centuries by wind and water, is home to the Colorado River. The canyon itself is 277 miles long, 18 miles wide in some areas and up to one mile deep.
This image is from the Yavapai Point on the south rim. The spot is located a short walk or drive from the visitors center. The haze was not as bad this time so I was able to capture better images than normal. The crowds were quite large during the visit and the number of buses and tourists seem to rise exponentially each time I visit.
Taken with my Canon EOS 5D Mark III using my EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM set on 24 mm. The camera was set on Aperture priority mode with the aperture set at f/16, shutter speed at 1/125 at ISO 100.
