Une vue différente du Canyon Waimea, il est aussi nommé le Grand Canyon du Pacifique. La photo a été prise d'un des point d'observation le long du canyon lors d'une visite organisée d'une journée de Kauai. Un négatif endommagé Kodak 5025 qui a été numérisé avec un Minolta Dimage Scan Dual IV.

Hi Pierre,I want to be there and see for myself this beautiful vista.Man oh man, what a world we live on with such joyous scenes such as this one.There is nothing in my mind that we humans can create that is as wonderful as nature's own artistry.Your photo shows a wild and yet friendly sort of place with a very good light and good field of depth.The photo could be a little shaper and somewhat darker for maximum impact,but as it is presented it looks just so inviting.I have done a workshop to illustrate what I mean in terms of a different take on this photo and I hope you do not mind that photo.


Hello Pierre,

This is a fine capture of the interior, showing well this rugged landscape of volcanic origin!
I'm not sure what the damage is but this looks fine to me the age considered...
A balanced composition, good colours!

Hello Pierre,
A very beautiful landscape image showing rugged mountains and a rich fertile valley. The contrasting colors of the red rock, green foliage and blue partly cloudy sky, make a gorgeous scene.

Hi Pierre,
very dramatic view of the canyon. i like the brown cliff that contrast with the greens and dramatic clouds.
what a view to witness.
we dont have much of this type of canyon. always covered by green forest.


We were here a few years ago.
Your image is MOST BEAUTIFUL!!!
We flew over too by helicopter.
Mario from Canada with greetings.

Hallo Pierre
The variation of colours in this image is wonderful. The scenery is very beautiful and it is a great landscape. I think it could be great to walk in the woods far down below, as I am sure one would discover lots of interesting insects, and the variation of wildflowers to photograph will be endless. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
