Horse Shoe Bend - Arizona

Horse Shoe Bend is a popular destination for photographers including famous photographers like Peter Lik.  See his version here

In order to get that iconic shot you need to get right to the edge of the drop off.  Very intimidating.  Hope you enjoy my versions of this beautiful location. I took some liberties to highlight the characteristics.


A bit of info on this location.

Many visitors are not aware that the Grand Canyon is surrounded by many small canyons and Horseshoe Bend is often times expected to be in the Grand Canyon. However, it is just several miles from the beginning of the National Park and is growing in popularity

The top of the overlook is 4,200 feet above sea level, and the Colorado River is at 3,200 feet above sea level, making the drop a 1,000 feet.
