Horseshoe Bend 2014

Images from my Canon EOS 7D camera.    Horseshoe Bend is near Page, AZ and is a photographer's favorite Colorado River bend viewpoint.

Photos of this deep canyon river are challenging, as the high vantage point is dangerous, and a very wide angle lens is needed to see the whole scene in one shot.   A panorama of several shots can be taken with an ordinary longer lens, and stitched together in the computer afterwards, but an extra-wide-angle lens makes the image capture far easier.  

These photos were taken by using a 11-16mm  f/2.8 Tokina lens, which was very adequate to include the whole picture on my Canon 7D camera.   The time was near sunset, so I experienced a few shots which had modest amounts lens flare from the sunlight striking the lens.   It was easy to eliminate during image post-processing.

The second image below has a warning about the dangerous cliff edges above this river view,  which can be deceptive about supporting a viewer who stands too close to the edge!

A hike of about a mile
takes a bit of effort on a sandy trail which climbs to a high crest before descending a long distance to the edge of the river bend view.   It is a popular place, with many people sharing the view.
