Grand Canyon holidays

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.

  1. 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.

    1. 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 🙂

  2. 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.
