Horseshoe Bend
Camera: K-3

Rumor has it that this will be turned over to the national park service due to complaints of problems with parking. Not sure if that is true and am not sure if it will help the situation. The place is crowded all the time and parking is horrendous so people park anywhere and everywhere they can squeeze into. It is a lovely place though.

This is one of several HDRs I took while there.

Wow great result and setting. Is there always that much water in the river or has it been a good season, would be awesome to kayak that stretch of river.

Seems to have been lots of rain everywhere this year. The water level was about the same the last time I saw it though (in '09).

Thanks Rupert. Say hi to Otis for me. Saw quite a few of his friends on this trip.

Beautiful area, love seeing that shot with no foreground. Anne was able to get to the edge and do that....I was 10 feet back and thinking the crop tool might save me :-)
Given that you were here, I guess means we are in for a visit to Antelope. Cant wait.

I had the tripod hanging over the edge for this one. Took several HDR images too. Mid-day lighting was almost perfect and a few clouds thrown in helped a lot.
Yep, Lower Antelope is coming to a site near you soon. We did Upper the last time we were in the area and decided to do lower this time. Got lucky with our guide too. Spent almost 3 1/2 hours in the canyon on a 2 hour photographer"s tour. Lower doesn't have the impressive light shafts but it was simply stunning on its own.

In my humble opinion .... Lower is the pick. Have done both and found it difficult to get an appreciation of Upper due to the crowds and the fact that you are "ushered through" whereas the photo tour of Lower is much more relaxed.
looking forward to seeing your interpretation of it.

Great shot, Susan! Such an iconic place, but hard to capture it this well.

Beautiful work, Susan. I've done very little myself lately, due to not working in the highly photogenic Pilbara any more. But I am going back on Thursday for 8 days work, I hope the thunderstorms crank up!!

They are really rushing people through the lower now too. A few years ago you could go through on your own and spend as much time as you wanted there but not anymore. The lower is also so much tighter that it makes for cramped working quarters. Still, we wouldn't have missed it. Your link takes me back to my own post by the way.

I am praying for thunderstorms for you. We had them at several of the parks we visited with rainbows attached. Just lovely.
