14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Horseshoe Bend

Horseshoe Bend at Page, AZ Went by this spot more than 20 years ago and didn't know that it was there…mistake corrected…this spot is not for the fainted of heart, you have to be at the edge of the cliff to be able to see the whole thing and there is no barrier or anything to hold on, plus the wind is quite strong…I got there earlier than I usually do for sunset so I was able to walk around and pick the best possible spot. Then I thought I was in trouble when a giant rain cloud moved right smack in front of the sun.…as luck have it the sun still burned right through the horizon with the orange glow…what a lucky shot I had.
