The Bend - Page , Arizona .... Darwin Awards Moment

Horseshoe Bend near Page, Arizona. One of the “Wow” places , so difficult to convey in a simple photograph how majestic , how HUGE it is. One of the thing that it is really difficult to shoe …. how windy it was ...and how insane was standing inches away from the edge of the canyon with the wind blowing like a wind tunnel … plus all the red dust – I was sandblasted. The most scary parts were the wind suddenly died down and it did feel like someone pushed you towards the cliff. Fun place but be careful , extending tripod all the way “ to see over the edge “ may not be the greatest idea ( it could be the last one ) . I guess , with my behavior , I almost qualified for Darwin Award .

 

Press "L" for large .. not for LOOSER :-)

or "F" for ... your dream to come true
