Southwest USA

Hi All,

First photo posting, so bear with me while I figure it out. These images are from a trip earlier this month to the US, which was my first serious use of the OM-D EM-1:

Toroweap Outlook, Grand Canyon National Park at sunset


Toroweap Outlook


White Pocket, Arizona - fisheye shot


Antelope canyon


"Selfie" at White Pocket



Very impressed by the OM-D both cute, *and* capable! (and no, I won't say "bit like myself!" )

Re: Southwest USA

You've got some spectacular shots, and it looks like you've already mastered that camera!

Re: Southwest USA

Superb images of stunning scenery.

You've certainly got to grips with the E-M1.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Southwest USA

Superb shots. I guess you were on a trip that meant you were in the right places at the right time. My two visits to the GC have always been at the wrong time of the day - mid afternoon

In awe Margaret, they are brilliant. I couldn't pick a favourite, I'd hang them all on the wall. Looking forward to seeing more.

Hi there MargaretR!

I can't tell from the selfie how "cute" you are, but all of those images show just how capable you are with that camera - great images and I am unable to pick a favourite.

Keep posting the great images,

Cheers,

Ralph.

Re: Southwest USA

I heartily agree with the others comments and I can honestly say, the wait was worth it.

If I had to pick a favourite, it would be Antelope Canyon. A very unusual aspect.

Re: Southwest USA

Hi Margaret. As the others have said, all great images, and so different.
I guess for a favourite I just can't go past No1 for such a great scenic shot,but
they all made enjoyable viewing. It must have been a great trip!
