Here's my little colour study of the Grand Canyon, celebrating the glorious range of warm tones captured in the sun baked rock of Arizona. I particularly like the deep reds (more burgundy and purple in places) with the striking blue ribbon of the Colorado River running through it. The line work makes this image a bit abstract in places... but sometimes I enjoy that effect. I could imagine this being quite a challenging jigsaw puzzle! It's easy to focus on the big cities of North America, but the landscapes are vast and wondrous. I hope some day that we'll have the opportunity to take a long meandering road trip through these States.
