some Grand Canyon Color
Lens: 43 ltd Camera: K-3 Photo Location: Grand Canyon AZ 
Posted By: Bob Harris, 09-12-2014, 08:07 PM

We had rain in the am and in the pm when returning to Williams AZ, but the clouds would part at times displaying the color of the canyon. I took the K5 and K3 and exchanged different lenses to compare results but honestly couldn't see much difference in these landscapes. I shot this with the K3 and my favorite lens, the 43mm ltd.

the lines of different strata gives an odd look to the photo I thought.

It was all about the light here, really helped get a few decent photos during the day.

thanks so much, glad you have enjoyed my photos on our travels, like I said it was all about the light, many of the photos I uploaded are drab so I was happy with this one for sure.

I love the play of light and shadow. And, of course, the colors.
