Horseshoe Bend - Page Arizona

This is my obligatory photo of the iconic Horseshoe Bend. This is west of Page Arizona, downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam and upstream from Lee's Ferry. Many tourists take a one day raft trip from the dam to Lee's Ferry and return by bus. This overlook is about 1/2 mile hike from the parking lot so lots of tourists see this. It is a long way down so folks with a fear of heights probably don't work out this far. I wish the clouds and light had been better. Oh well - play the hand that you are dealt. There are many exquisite photos of this iconic view so I have hesitated to post my offering. And I wanted to have it online in case my harddrive crashes again and I lose this shot. I had to prove that I can see as well as the others. A better wide angle lens is helpful. In my opinion too many people get too hung up on big panoramas and don't capture the essence.
