Dawn At Horseshoe Bend
6.27.15 – I enjoyed a few hours of early morning solitude watching the sunrise over the Colorado River. It’s an incredible viewpoint, perched on a 1,000 foot vertical cliff above the river. Because the sun rises from behind this overlook, it creates some harsh contrast on the canyon and bend. Compare the photo I posted from my phone in June (here) with a photo from my camera. The pre-sunrise photo posted below was taken at 5:00 AM, about an hour earlier than the sunrise photo in the link above. Usually I prefer photos with some contrast and warmth, but I think the cold, blue tones of the dawn photo are incredible here.
