Horseshe Bend - And My Vertigo
October 23, 2014
I have to tell you, the series of shots that I took at Horseshoe Bend made me very nervous. I DO NOT like heights, and in order to get the whole bend (and I didn't accomplish that task very well) you have to get really, really close to the edge of the sheer cliffs overlooking the natural horseshoe of the Colorado River.
I remember the first shot on Smugmug that I ever saw of this iconic place was of Judy Horton (fotoeffects) laying on her belly at the edge of the cliff. I salute you Judy for your bravery - I couldn't do it. I thought about you, and tried to lay down, but those butterflies in my tummy just wouldn't let me do it. Thank goodness that Bill was there to set up my tripod for this 5 HDR shot and keep me steady.

Have a lovely day today my friends.
