Photographing Horseshoe Bend – Marco Schröder


These picture, I was somewhat surprised at these amazing outcome, is more or less a lucky spin-off (serendipity).
It is the result of a snapshot during our trip to the United States this summer.
We made a round-trip from San Francisco to Las Vegas.
During the journey we stopped at Page. We have heard about the possibility to take an amazing view at the Horseshoe Bend and the Antelope Canyon. We were impressed from the amazing view and the fantastic weather.

To be on the edge of an abyss we took this picture. This picture is a composing image of 7  single images, when the camera 1st hand-held (=without using a tripod). It is being processed as a HDR. I used a Nikon D600 with a wide angle lens 15mm.

    Hi Crystal,
    The photographer doesn’t specify what time he took the photo, but I’m guessing, from the angle of the sun overhead it was sometime between mid-morning and mid-day. Fortunately, there’s no such thing as a bad time to visit Horseshoe Bend, except maybe at night – no lights, no guardrails and a 500’+ drop to the river aren’t exactly a good combination LOL Best Time to Visit Horseshoe Bend
