Excellent photos mate! Made me kind of envious, the place was perfect! My favorite picture was the canyon’s sculpted walls. Cool site!

Oh boy, I have been dreaming about rafting since I was a kid. Unfortunately, I could only get to raft on quite slow, boring rivers… seems like you had so much fun there.

I love your first photo, btw! :)

Ohh.. My My excellent photographs and with high resolution providing rich and lively impact. I am stunned to see the wilderness area and this River is just like a hope in the deserted region. Nice clicks.

These images are amazing it looks like it was a great adventure. The canyon’s sculptured walls really are intriguing and beautiful. It really does make me want to take a trip down to canyons. I wish we had some beautiful canyons like that in the UK.
