Horseshoe Bend, Page AZ

I was in Page, Arizona for the latter half of this week while attending Bill Fortney’s Southwest Tour and Workshop. Yesterday we went to Horseshoe Bend around sunrise, and having a fear of heights, I hung far back from the edge of the cliff. Instead, I turned my camera to the left and was able to capture this rather colorful scene.

After a while, I was able to muster up a little bit of courage, and managed to get within three feet or so of the edge of the cliff overlooking Horseshoe Bend. This image provides a more conventional look at Horseshoe Bend.

It’s interesting to note that these two images were taken with Nikon’s D800 digital camera. In the bottom image, at full size you can clearly see the people walking around down by the river. Now that’s high resolution!
