I have seen many shots of this area, but I have to say this is among the best. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you, I really appreciate your compliments. It is a fairly difficult area to shoot -- the lighting is usually uncooperative, and the composition can be hard to impart scale.

The depth to this is really amazing. I kind of want to see it without the cloud cover, just to see how much more color the canyon actually has.

This place is still on my list to photograph. Shame on me for never going and I live in the state. I like the tones throughout the canyon as they appear pastel like. The upper right ridges seem a little too contrasty and my eyes keep getting drawn to that. I think here I would have chosen a vertical comp and include more of the river as well. The cliffs in the back have some very nice light on them as well.

The upper-right ridges are actually where the direct sun was hitting them most. So, naturally, juxtaposed the rest of the scene that has little contrast due to shading, it's bound to look a little biting.

I also considered a vertical composition. However, for many reasons, I opted for the horizontal, "landscape," crop, instead.

Yes, the composition is superior to many. You've given the feeling of depth and perspective and the exposures are perfection in light and shadow. A masterful photo!

Not often do I come across a picture of the canyon that makes me smile. Most shots are totally cliché - with no depth whatsoever - designed for tourists and postcards.

This one gave me pause because of the shadows and light, kinda like Mother Nature decided to stand still for you...just for a moment...and pose. :) Awesome shot.
