My Son Paul Photographing Horseshoe Bend, Page, Arizona

Due to the direction of the setting sun, Horseshoe Bend is difficult to photograph at sunset. The canyon and river bend is mostly shadowed when the sun is near setting. I was looking for a different angle and approach to photograph Horseshoe Bend when I saw Paul standing on the rock taking photographs. The light caught my eye and I liked that it was a different angle than most images of Horseshoe Bend that I have seen.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II ,Canon 17-40 L Series
f/13.0 at 20.0mm iso400 full exif
