Description South Rim of the Grand Canyon in winter. View from Mather Point (7,120 ft high) the rust rock in the foreground is O'Neill Butte (5,700 ft high) made of Hermit Shale Formation from 275 million years ago. In the background, the square gray rock top at the horizon is Wotans Throne (7,633 ft high) and Vishnu Temple (7,829 ft high) is the pointy gray rock top to the right of it. The peak below Vishnu is Krishna Shrine (6,615 ft high) and the peak below it is Newberry Butte ( 5,105 ft high).
Victor Cariri, Sedona, Arizona Member Since April 2009 Artist Statement I have been photographing the landscape of the American Southwest for over 20 years. Moving near Sedona and the Grand Canyon has given me far greater freedom to catch their beauty with different combinations of light, clouds, storms and even snow.
All of my Sedona and Grand Canyon photographs for posters and prints are real, not faked. I use digital Nikon camera equipment that produces the highest quality photographs and do not distort the colors or add elements with image editing software. This being said, when the lighting is just right at sunset, the bright orange glowing Red Rocks of Sedona appear fake in the photos even to me...and I know that's how they really look! They are just magnificent!
Sedona, Arizona and the Grand Canyon are awe-inspiring, beautiful, tranquil...and yet, energizing. I hope you enjoy viewing my Sedona and Grand Canyon photographs as much as I did taking them!
