The Bend by StevenDavisPhoto The Bend by StevenDavisPhoto
This shot won a Daily Deviation on 1/28/11 ([link]), and Photo of the Day on 1/7/11 at OneDailyShot.com.
Thank you so much to those of you who support me and help get my name out there more!!!

Horseshoe Bend is just west of Page, AZ. It's a crazy spot where the Colorado River forms a horseshoe shape and makes this canyon before opening up into the Grand Canyon. My Induro tripod was about 8 inches from the edge. I rented a Canon 10-22 lens for my trip for this shot specifically and I'm glad I did. This shot requires a REALLY wide angle to get everything. I now own this lens, because it's awesome on a crop body like my Canon t2i. Enjoy :)

A mounted print of this shot can be purchased at my Etsy store for only $20 - [link]

^Lilyas said; "A beautiful and impressive artwork! The artist is quite unknown but surely deserves to get more attention on his work."

=Topicality said; "The Bend by =StevenDavisPhoto is really awesome. The blue pops against the red canyon: that plus the contours of the river, makes this a beautiful shot."

When I was a kid I had a subscription to the magazine 'Arizona Highways'. I could spend hours just looking at the pictures. Thank you for reminding me. This is truly a beautiful shot.

This is a great picture, and very similar to one by Peter Lik. When your pictures remind someone of his, you know you're good. ;)

I'm going to have to think about that mounted print at Etsy. It sure seems worth a sawbuck to me!
One of my favorite places to visit is the Grand Canyon, and of course this photo captures this place perfectly.
