Photographer's Note

Every landscape on this earth poses an unlikelihood and forms a single moment, a place that will later be gone.
The Grand Canyon seems to be permanent with its colossal cliffs and temples, certainly more everlasting than our quick lives...
But permanence does not explain the Grand Canyon´s existence. Change does.
Layer by layer, the Grand Canyon reveals what happend in the past and maybe one day the Caynon will have eventually more layers.
But this is the future, and the future is hard to tell. The one certain thing is that the Grand Canyon will be gone...
If you are confused by all of this, dont feel bad..
We humans only live for 70, maybe 100 yeras.
To grasp millions of years exceeds our ability. Perhaps that is why people come here.
We can see in this place that a million years is as tangible as a single day..

This picture is dedicated to beloved person, who is gone.. But i hope from the bottom of my heart that she can see this from somewhere.
