Stunning!

I saw the title and wondered how you got the RV to the bottom of the canyon!

Beautiful pictures! The longer shadows with the afternoon shot make for a very dramatic picture with beautiful colors. Wonder why you changed cameras? Also, what lenses were you using on each?

Watch that first step! I like the second image's composition and color best although I think the contrast is somewhat harsh. Just my $0.02.

thanks Jeff, that would be quite a feat, I could probably make it down but would have to be air lifted out.

I'll tell you I really looked like a tourist with two cameras walking around the canyon. I shot the first photo with the K5 and 18-250 tele lens and the second was taken with the K3 and 43mm lens which I forgot and left a ND 8 filter on it which darkened the image too much for a later afternoon shot. I think it is the editing that gave the photo the contrast harshness as you stated. I've only edited a few of the photos I took last week but the photos with the K3 and 43mm all turned out great using the filter earlier in the day in direct sunlight.
