A View from Maricopa Point in Grand Canyon National Park. Maricopa point is located off Hermit Road, on what is called the West Rim of the Grand Canyon. At times my work in Photography in Professional forums has been compared to the work of Ansel Adams. (Especially the Black and White images.) Some have said my photographs of the Grand Canyon look three dimensional. This may be due to my artistic ability or schooling in art appreciation, especialy as a sculptor and photographer. As Ansel Adams said, "A photograph is not taken, but created. 85% or more is created after you press the shutter." Fortunately was able to attend Ansel's Seminars in Yosemite National Park several times. For years most of my photo processing was completed with his chemical formula's for film and paper. Photoshop is the Modern Darkroom, so attempt to use in in the manner that Id work in a physical darkroom. Imaging if Ansel Adams was living how he would use Photoshop. Much of the credit for my ability, goes to both Ansel Adams and Edward Weston whose seminars were also some of my favorites.
For thousands of years, the area has been continuously inhabited by Native Americans who built settlements within the canyon and its many caves. The Pueblo people considered the Grand Canyon a holy site and made pilgrimages to it. The first European known to have viewed the Grand Canyon was Garca Lopez de Cordenas from Spain, who arrived in 1540.
