Canyons and Valleys – Natural Monuments Created by Rivers

Glorified by many Hollywood films, American Grand Canyon, located in Arizona, is, perhaps, one and the only canyon with the world fame and popularity. However, there are many and many other canyons in the word, each being characterized with the distinct authentic look and surrounded by multiple legends and true stories. Like with other natural masterpieces, it took millions of years for the Mother Nature to create canyons, which are today the monuments and reflections of the complex geological process, taking place on planet Earth times ago.

Along with impregnable canyons, we are also displaying the photographs of valleys in our today’s gallery of featured photographs. Unlike canyons, valleys have always been hospitable to people, offering them fertile soil, source of water, reliable protection from harsh climate conditions or even enemies, and uniquely picturesque living environment. The sceneries of valleys, thriving with verdure, soothe the souls and supply energy to all the travelers, passing by. We are sure the pictures of canyons and valleys, we have prepared today, will be a good source of inspiration, live energy, and positive emotions to all those, who are looking for them.

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
