GRAND CANYON 2004, revisited

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!

Although I have never been to the Grand Canyon myself, I have a friend who is quite the photographer that has and he gave me some of his pics.  I hope to get them posted soon.  Also have some of Switzerland that he took.  He is awesome and will get full credit when I do post.  I LOVE looking at the world through others eyes!!!!!

I visited the Grand Canyon when I was 16, something you never forget.  I would love to go back for another visit someday soon.
