Amazing ????

Same photographer See all

Behind The Lens

Location
Horseshoe bend of the Colorado River. Approximately five miles outside of Page, AZ. The last time I was there, there was only a small sign so it's rather difficult to find
Time
About 4PM in January. The sun was getting low
Lighting
As you can see, the sun was behind me but anytime other than high noon will provide great shots
Equipment
Canon 40D, 28 to 105mm lens, tripod
Inspiration
I had seen so many beautiful photographs of horseshoe bend that I had to make the trip. Awe-inspiring sight.
Editing
Three exposure shot processed in Photo-matix
In my camera bag
Camera, three lenses 10-300mm, memory cards, flash, assorted filters and other junk
Feedback
It's about a three-quarter mile walk over some rough terrain to get there. Expect lots of company; it has become very popular. The last time I was there (Jan 2014) there was no barrier so please be very careful. If you could get there in the late afternoon with, hopefully, some clouds on the horizon prepare for a thrill. 2/2019 update. I just heard that someone plummeted over the edge and died. Apparently, there is still no fence. So PLEASE be careful!
