Horseshoe Bend

Just a mile or two south of Page, Arizona is a spot where the Colorado River makes a complete 270 degree bend 1000 feet below your view-point. Horseshoe Bend is a popular spot with photographers from all over the world, and with good reason. The view is nothing short of spectacular and it’s a fairly easy to reach location. I recently spent a few days near Page, and until then I had never really placed Horseshoe Bend very high on my list of “must see” landscapes. After shooting sunset one evening and sunrise the following morning, I’m now looking forward to my next opportunity to experience this iconic location.

Click on the photo for a better view, and look very closely at the beach on the opposite side of the river. There are boaters camping down there!IMG_5247
