I found these pictures while looking for my Disneyland pictures from last summer. We took a trip to California, via Arizona and had to visit the Grand Canyon. I used my Sony Cybershot, which is a wonderful little camera but I had the resolution set too low and it resulted in grainy pictures. Still, it was hard not to capture the awesome natural beauty of the canyon.
I had to cut part of the first picture off because I had inadvertently included a portion of my palm as I tried to shade the camera from the sun. The tower is the Desert View Watchtower, which is a very striking structure no matter how you photograph it. I am looking forward to returning to the Canyon with my new camera. My goal is to get a good sunset picture. The sunsets there are phenomenal but I was unable to capture the magical beauty at the time. But soon, I hope, soon!
