Truly an outstanding photograph. Black and White really accentuates the peaks and valleys along with the ridgelines.
Thanks.

An unusual approach to go for B&W but a great result.
Composition as well as processing are excellent.

A creative and refreshingly different look at the Grand Canyon. A brilliant photo, compositionally and technically, Jerry.

Thanks very much volley, glad you liked it! I hadn't thought of B&W when I took it but gave it a try later.

Thanks Jer, very nice words indeed! I don't normally shoot much B&W but I had so many versions of this shot that I wanted to try something different with a few of them.

It's not a picture ...it's a photograph and a wonderful one. The layering of the different rock formations...lovely.
