“Grand Canyon in Technicolor”

© 2015 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott

There are few things as truly grand as the Grand Canyon. It’s interesting the different things that catch your eye as a photographer. I grew up in Arizona, and have been to the Canyon many times before. I would have always have tried to find as unobstructed a view as possible before, but I found myself drawn instead to the trees that were full of character that grow around the Canyon. I particularly loved this view, with the fabulous old pine as a counterbalance to the vastness of the Grand Canyon beyond. I finished this shot with an old Technicolor 2 Strip (faded) emulation in Alien Skin Exposure to give it a “larger than life” sense of drama.
