Horseshoe Bend, Page, Arizona
ISO 100, 12mm, f/13, 1/6sec
Following the Colorado River south from my previous photo at Glen
Canyon Dam, you will get to Horseshoe Bend.
The eroding water has created a large horseshoe shaped bend (hence the name) in the landscape. To get there you have to make a pretty steep hike over a hill near the parking lot, from there it's an easy walk down to the bend. The hike back however is up hill again ;)
The photo is taken with an extreme wideangle lens, so it doesn't show how immense this bend really is. A spectacular sight!
Unfortunately the strong wind bombarded my camera with sand and small rocks, so I decided to take only a few quick shots before heading back to the hotel again to clean my camerabag inside out.
