Horseshoe Bend, Navajo Nation, Page, Arizona

This is a straight on evening view of Horseshoe Bend which is just outside of Page, Arizona. Graduated filters helped balance the bright sky with the mostly shaded canyon. I found this to be a challenging capture with the difficult lighting. Even so it was much better once the sun had set behind the distant mountains than earlier in the evening.

The mood here is incredible!
This totally destroys the idea that one shouldn't shoot these iconic places because it has been done.
Your work here is brilliant!

definitely a photo challenge, and well handled...the subdued colours of river and rocks brings a richer atmosphere than is possible in full sun...

I have done this and seen many. This image, taken at the time of day has a charm and solidity that cutout all extraneous details I generally see. "Big Vote, Dave"
