• You have to be there to really know what it’s like.

    The feeling you have when standing on the rim of a canyon comparable only to falling in love.

  • Canyons or gorges are one of nature’s natural wonders.

    Whether admired from a height or scaled from the depths of the valley, their size and beauty are awe-inspiring.

Astounding Canyons in the USA

Antelope Canyon, Arizona

Antelope Canyon is a slot canyon in the American Southwest. It is divided into two main upper and lower photogenic sections: The Crack and The Corkscrew.

King Canyon, California

Situated in Kings Canyon National Park, this canyon actually features the deepest gorge in the country. Spring is one of the most beautiful times to visit this stunning area.

The Grand Canyon, Arizona

Nearly two billion years of Earth's geological history have been exposed as layer after layer of rock has been eroded and carried away by the river, and estimates put the age of the canyon at least 5 million years.

More of Canyons Around the World

Echidna Chasm, Australia

This sandstone joint in the Bungle Bungle Range in Western Australia’s Purnululu National Park is only a 1.5-mile walk from the parking lot. Its narrows slot down to six feet wide in spots, with 600-foot walls above, bouncing sunlight around to glow red and orange, making it a photographer’s dream.

Yarlung Tsangpo, Tibet/China

A lot of folks say the Yarlung Tsangpo Grand Canyon is the deepest canyon in the world, and it’s definitely longer than the U.S.’s Grand Canyon, making it one of the world’s largest. As it passes between the Namcha Barwa and Gyala Peri mountain ranges, it’s 16,000 feet deep, and explorations of the gorge by boaters have led to nicknaming the Yarlung Tsangpo “The Everest of Rivers” because of its harrowing conditions. A full descent of the gorge has yet to be completed, although a group of kayakers completed a bold descent of the upper gorge in 2002.

Canyon Photography Tips

  • Take The Time To Scout

    Taking time to scout locations is a time-tested method for getting great shots, no matter the locale.

    Use A Tripod

    Nothing will help you get sharper images than using a sturdy tripod.

    Bracket Your Images

    Bracketing images means taking several images (usually three to five) of the same scene at different exposures to capture the entire dynamic range of a high contrast scene. These images can then be stitched together in post-production into an HDR (high dynamic range) image.
