Canyons are fascinating places. The result of thousands, if not millions of years of erosion processes, canyons are usually formed by rivers cutting away rock slowly, resulting in a steep valley surrounded by sharp rock faces.

Because canyons have a lot of elevation changes, combined with their locations in the wilderness and river features, they are great subjects for photographers. It’s possible to get a great aerial perspective, capture the sun reflecting off the rock faces and the river, or a majestic sunset with clouds over the seemingly endless terrain.

In this post we’ll look at 30 majestic canyon photographs that show off some of the features that are great elements of canyons.
