Three things just happened. First, the weather. After a beautiful day yesterday that i didn’t have a chance to enjoy, this morning greeted me with chilly drizzle.
Second, the article I read another day. The National Park Service designated the site of a 1956 two plane collision over Grand Canyon, Arizona, a National Historic Landmark.
Third, my upcoming holidays. When I plan to go on holidays, I get obsessive about plane crashes and weather…
All that made me think it would be a good idea to look through my old Grand Canyon photographs. I bet nothing have changed there, so I still can share them. They are taken with a three-megapixel camera though. That has been a while…
Indian Paintbrush (Castilleja) is a beauty of the Nature! It’s flowers are also edible and have a medical use.
Eighty-nine mammal species inhabit Grand Canyon area, as well as 355 species of birds, 56 species of reptiles and 17 species of fish. I have some more photographs of the reptiles, but this one is the most impressive.
The deer and jack-rabbits are not shy and let me come really close.
While I was writing and posting, the weather here changed twice…
Photography tip of the day: taking photographs of landscapes focus on a point that is approximately 34 feet ( 10-11 meters) from the camera’s sensor. Lock the focus, make your composition, and depress the shutter to the end. Everything in your picture will be sharp starting from 17 feet ( 5 meters) through infinity.
I’ve only been there once and it was a long time ago. Your pictures are amazing.
Thank you Olga! So did I, long time ago. Hope you travel again, may be to write a book? 😉
Been there, done that, but dang yours are better! Hmmm…
You do realize, don’t you, that you are intimidating the rest of us? That bunny picture is one in a million.
Oh you are way too kind! The pictures were taken with a 3 megapixel bridge camera, my light-weight favorite for that time. The bunny was a bold brat and he was running around with no fear, close enough for a portrait. He has a glimpse of desert in his eye 🙂
These took my breath away! They’re beautiful. When it’s a natural beauty there’s no need for a fancy camera at all, just that person or that place.
Thanks for sharing.
You are so right, Farzana. Thank you for stopping by!:)
Thank you! Taken ages ago, with a very simple bridge camera:) great memories, it is raining here, nice to reflect on something hot and dry:)
