Canyonlands National Park near Moab, Utah.

The thing I liked about Canyonlands is that it's so vast, it stretches so far, but it's somehow more intimate than the Grand Canyon. Someone we were talking to said, "When I stand on the edge of the Grand Canyon, even though it's right there in front of me, it feels like it's somewhere else" ... and I knew exactly what he meant.

The Grand Canyon is beyond comprehension. This place was something I could get my head around.

For scale, find the old mining road in the foreground. That's a truck-sized road, not a hiking path.

A beautiful photo, and all the better for the scale reference.

A great study in black and white. If I may quote a world famous idiot, "It's yuge!"

Remember when I went on and on and on about that movie, Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone? Well, The filmed the exteriors in and around Moab.

I really like this. Geology is so dramatic, and I can definitely understand what you say about being able to get your head around this. It does have a kind of intimate feel to it, or at least a gentler feel. I think it's because the Grand Canyon has more jagged business going on, but from what I can see here, this is softer, more curvy, with a little bit of nice, haze action going on in the distance. This rocks!

Great shot Tara. I love the Grand Canyon, and yes, I can kind of understand what you mean, in that, this would be more intimate. Perhaps its because it's not as high as the GC, with the CO River flowing miles below, making it difficult to actually see the actual size of it. I'm explaining this bad. But what can I say, I'm on my first cup lol

Having spent a good part of my life hiking, biking, driving and boating the Colorado river system, what really makes it stand out are the colors and how the sum plays off them. This is a great shot. The pov couldn't be better!

One word: Otherworldly...or is that two words?
That was a park of fantastic views...IMHO quite different on opposite sides of the mesa.
Like this in monotone.

It looks to me like the land split and pulled apart; what a beautiful curve that canyon took! Wonderful shot!
