Hello Pedro,
A gorgeous view of this very pretty canyon from a nice high vantage point. Reminds me a lot of some areas of the Grand Canyon. I love this type of terrain and enjoy viewing it on our trips out west. Someday I want very much to visit Mexico and see this for myself.
Colors are beautiful, exposure is right on the money and the entire frame is in sharp focus. Great shot!! TFS.

Hello Pedro

I also viewed the photo in the WS but I prefer much more the POV of this photo,
very fine POV and the way you framed the image, and beautiful contrast
between the sky's cold and the ground's warm color tones, TFS


I have read a lot about legendary 'White Horse' making running popular in Copper Canyon and about the Raramuri inhabitants as best long distance runners in their native sandals, Pedro.
A grand panoramic view of the rugged terrain.
