Approaching Storm Over Horseshoe Bend

Posted by
Don Smith (California, United States) on 2 June 2008 in Landscape & Rural.

An approaching thunderstorm brings a dramtic sky over the area known as Horseshoe Bend, located in the Glen Canyon Recreation area near Page, Arizona. This was my first visit to the area where the Colorado River bends 270-degrees around Navajo sandstone. When we first arrived, the light was very harsh. The timing of these boats and the clouds made the short wait worthwhile. I finally had to give up shortly after getting this shot because the winds began to howl, blowing sand and dust into my eyes and camera gear.
