HorseShoe Bend [Whole]

    Newer Older

    TADA !

    This was what I had seen in photos everywhere and was absolutely thrilled to go there. It is SO GORGEOUS that no photo can do it justice - just standing there on the precipice, inching closer and closer (some folks - laying down) to get in as much of the vast scenery as possible into the frame. [This is when I felt smug at having a 17mm on a full-frame sensor - watching folks struggle to contain the entire scene in a frame]. A lady walked up to me and asked me if she could look through my viewfinder to see how I could manage to fit everything in the frame! Take that, suckers!

    I was a little worried that my tripod would just topple over the ledge with the weight of the heavy D700 and the lens attached, but I was lucky. I was eager to photograph this on the last day of our trip, after having a less-than-ideal first day photo-op (we reached just as the sun was setting behind the canyon - leaving it in complete shadow).

    We managed to catch the last light at horsebend just as the clouds were clearing, but only to start drizzling - when we wound up our equipment and started to leave.

    We drove through snow/storm the last evening to reach Page and directly head to Horseshoe bend (not before making a disappointing stop at Lone Rock). The dark and ominous looking clouds were quite a sight - Launa was worried that we might not be able to make it to the Slot canyons the next day (her hobby is worrying).

    I didn't think the distortion on this was worth correcting. Anyone have any different opinions?

    The best way to view my stream - FLUIDR!
