Grand Canyon from South Rim (1st Jun 2006)

OK, there are millions of images of the Grand Canyon taken from Yavapi Point on South Rim – but this is my image, and I think the colours are stunning.  This was our last night camping – the next day we went to Las Vegas, the day after I flew home.  Again this is composed from several 35mm frames.

Of course it is far more impressive in a larger size!

PPG Plaza, Pittsburgh (22nd May 2006)

The PPG Plaza is the most amazing building – a sort of gothic creation in black glass!  I first saw when we popped out from a tunnel under the hills to the south of Pittsburgh and though the Houses of Parliament had been given a rather drastic makeover and moved a few thousand miles.

It does, however, make a great photographic subject.  What I love about this image is the contrast between the hardness and geometry of the building and the lovely bright spring green in the potted trees.
