Sunset at Horseshoe Bend
One of the best things about my recent visit to the Wave is that it gave me a good excuse to stop by Horseshoe Bend (just south of Page, Arizona). We arrived as the sun was setting and had some incredible luck with clouds and color.
Several photographers with serious equipment were lined up next to me, and one of the guys hiked back to the parking lot about 10 minutes before this color appeared. He didn’t seem like he was in a hurry and must have just assumed that nothing interesting was going to happen. It was a good reminder that sunsets move in mysterious ways – it usually pays to stick it out until you’re absolutely sure the show is over.
This is a manual blend of two exposures, one for the sky and another for everything else.
