I finally made it to Horseshoe Bend to take my own version of this iconic shot. And boy did it not disappoint. My wife and I just got back this morning from a 7 day camping road trip through Southern Utah and Arizona. We got to Horseshoe on day 3 after spending the 2 prior days hiking Bryce Canyon. I opted against checking out the dam and headed straight to Horseshoe and I am glad I did. We arrived about 2.5 hours before sunset. I got my choice of spots. Had I waited even 30 minutes more, I wouldn't have had the spot I wanted. It was much more busy than I anticipated for winter. I guess people don't stay home during Thanksgiving anymore. I had a feeling it was going to be a good sunset because of the clean air and the very high clouds. The light show happened about 25 minutes after official sunset. The sky exploded with color which reflected down onto the landscape. It was quite magical and I hope my photos conveys what it was like in real life. I'm going to print this on metal. I just did my edit in LR. I usually wait a few days to fine tune things before I share but couldn't resist. My need a bit of tweaking but it looks good to me right now. Well, thanks for looking.
