November 2016. Like every year, we are back on the south rim of the Grand Canyon in the state of Arizona. We continue to work on our project "The Landscapes of the United States" whether in "shades of blacks and whites" or "lights and colors".

Each year, we experience the same shock. The Grand Canyon is huge, deep, and the warm colors are amazing. This time, we decided to photograph only with a long focal length to capture details. We chose the 200mm. Most photos are greatly framed to show details of lights.

There are not enough superlatives to qualify the Grand Canyon. Everything is disproportionate, whether the depth, the width or the length. The landscapes are absolutely dizzy. The colors are absolutely incredible with very warm tones on the rocks but also very pure greens for the trees. This year, we once again stayed on the south rim. Because the weather conditions were unpredictable, it often prevented us from going down with the cowboys to photograph the waterfalls that flow at the bottom of the canyon.

For this trip, we preferred the morning colors and patches of light with warm tones. We have focused on brightly lit areas surrounded by shade. It was necessary to be present 30 minutes before the sunrise to seize these magic moments when the world lights up.

Unlike the trip of the previous year, it did not snow. The temperatures were very cold. We were able to make photographs in accordance with our artistic approach. Some of these photographs will enrich our art collections dedicated to "shades of blacks and whites" or those devoted to "lights and colors".
