Horseshoe Bend

Horseshoe Bend

Horseshoe Bend is a meander of the Colorado River found outside of Page, Arizona. On our trip to photograph Antelope Canyon, we took a few hours to see Horseshoe Bend, and I'm sure glad we did! The drop from where I'm standing to the water is over 1000 feet! That's well over 3 football fields. The scale of this geological formation is awe inspiring. We waited on a cliff overlooking the bend for several hours, hoping the light would turn warm and inviting as the sun set on the horizon. At the last possible minute, the shot came together, and I got the shot. While this is a magical place that must been seen in person to fully appreciate it, I am fairly certain that my photograph here does the bend the best possible justice.
