Did you go to Canyon De Chelly as well? I did not see photos from there in your gallery. If not, make it your next trip. It impossible, they say, to capture the depth and space of the Grand Canyon in images. And it may be impossible to capture the color of light in Canyon De Chelly.
As a French guy I can't come very often in Western USA, but I'm pretty sure I'll do a trip there again in the next 2/3 years. I'll try in Spring or Autumn. Be sure I'll go to Canyon De Chelly. I checked pictures on the web it seems amazing too. Thanks for the advice !!
Ansel Adams photographed it but in black and white using his famous zone system. Once you have experienced the light and particularly the very special color of a Monument Valley or Grand Canyon, the thought of shooting it in black and white seems extraordinarily painful. I do understand when color imaging was hopelessly inaccurate and uncontrollable. Now it isn't.
