20 Majestic Mountain and Canyon Photographs

Mountain photography and canyon photography both offer opportunities for photos that portray a grand sense of scale.  Whereas mountains are generally formed from the collision and subduction of Earth’s tectonic plates, canyons are formed from erosion.  These processes take thousands of years, but it’s well worth the wait, as they are some of the most majestic natural features on Earth.

In this post, you’ll find 20 majestic mountain photos and canyon photos from landscapes around the world.  Whether at the base of a mountain or on the canyon floor, or viewing it from high above, the beauty of our planet is shown in these photographs.
