A breathtaking copper paradise shines until the last of what your eyes see. This iconic gorge is a mixture of several ancient canyons of different ages woven by several erosion and climatic changes that happened over 6 million years. In this post, I won’t say much about this lovely place since a lot of information is available on the internet. It is just a small description of the canyon to my untrained eye!
My brother took some wonderful shots and I want this post to be all about it! He mesmerized me with the pictures he took…he is a wonderful photographer and has done huge justice to my post here! Hope you enjoy…
It is said that almost 40 layers of sedimentary rock are exposed in the grand canyon. Here is a great picture to show how the layers make this place enchanting.
Ripple marks are commonly seen in the canyon with a tinge of dark brown.
The red shale or the layer that appears on the rock is said to be an indicative of a warm, shallow sea. It does look like a sea at sunset, doesn’t it?
A small water runoff which probably feeds the Colorado River. It is so mysterious to just imagine all this!
Small patches of sand accumulate between rocks which makes this inhibited place a wonderland.
According to me, one can imagine something and is sure to find its shape in the rocks of the canyon. The rocks have taken so many different shapes. My brother captured a few breath-taking pictures of such rocks.
By this point, you’ve heard all about how I saw this miraculous place…would love to hear about what you think…so.. shoot in some comments and share what you though the canyon made you feel.
