    saw landscape

    Can I say as follows?

    We went to Grand Canyon and saw beautiful landscape. Especially the rising of the sun was the best landscape I had ever seen.

    The sun rising is not a landscape. A landscape is a view of the land.

    "The sun rising over the Canyon made it the most exciting view I have ever seen".

    We went to Grand Canyon and saw beautiful scenery, especially the rising sun. It was the best sunrise I had ever seen.

    No.

    Oddly we do say "look at OR saw the beautiful scenery", but "look at OR saw a beautiful view/scene".

    One can see a beautiful landscape and see the beautiful scenery.

    Ok, let's go with the flow.

    thank you anglika.

    but when could one use "a beautiful scenery" in a sentence? never?

    The rising sun made a beautiful scenery?
