You might have heard of Horseshoe Bend, Arizona, and if you have not heard of Horseshoe Bend it’s likely you have heard of Lake Powel that is downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. Horseshoe Bend is a magnificent site that received its name because of due to its horseshoe like appearance of the Colorado River located near Page, Arizona. Many of you know I am a New Mexico Mom Blogger that loves to travel. I have seen several amazing places, but none as stunning as Horseshoe Bend.
Viewers can witness the amazing view of Horseshoe Ben four nearly four miles long from a steep cliff almost. The steep cliff where you can witness Horseshoe Bend is about 4,200 feet above sea level, and the Colorado River you are looking down on it about 3,200 feet above sea level. Which means about 1,000 foot drop, or a ¾ mile hike from a little place off US Route 89.
It’s truly breathtaking, and lucky for us Horseshoe Bend – by Paul Reiffer, Landscape Photographer has decided to share some awesome tips and tricks to help us get the best photograph of Horseshoe Bend. If you are not able to head for Arizona to photograph this lovely place, than you can purchase your very own photograph. Pretty awesome right!
Paul Reiffer’s Tips for Photographing Shooting Horseshoe Bend
- Don’t count on the weather, it changes fast, and a clear sky can become cloudy quickly.
- Take a wide lens, and use it as wide as you are able to
- Be sure and clean your lens now and again. The more it is exposed, the more dust can accumulate.
- Planning on getting a good shot? Be sure to arrive early and get a good spot. Paul Reiffer has heard of people not be able to get up to the ridge during the peak season.
- Kick back and enjoy the view. Don’t be stuck behind your camera, enjoy what you are looking at with your eyes as well as the CMOS sensor.
