[ "Canyon Symphony" ]

A masterpiece of water and wind’s work of art…

An incredible gallery of light, color and textures… putting me in silence…

A sandstone prism filtering sunlight down through curved sandstone walls, creating dream-like patterns and constantly changing hues…

An hour and half in the middle of the tour traffic, I grasped every minute I had to plant the tripod hoping I was doing the right thing and would get something not blurred and useful. There was no time to compose any “perfect” shots and there were my muted grumbles when some figures walked into my two-minute exposure. It was a challenging place for photographing, with the crowds, the tight times and not to mention the changing lights and shadows. A few weeks later now, I sat in front of the computer trying to find some cosmos out of the chaos. Thanks to the work of mother nature, it turned out that there wasn’t any moment that’s not very picturistic or artsy so to speak…  When I look closer I noticed that nature was very forceful but at the same time detailed when she sculpted her piece of art. Just imagine the now calm and tranquil canyon walls was once so roughly washed by flash flood. My work is merely bringing out nature’s power and delicateness: the curvatures of sandstone waves, the vertical lines left behind by water streams, the sand pocket, the twisted cracked rocks…

Meanwhile, I am having lots of fun phrasing the nature’s art with wild imaginations. How do you like these names? Feel free to share your artsy ideas with me!

These images can also be viewed with a darker background (better I think) in the slideshow at the end of the post.
