Horseshoe Bend, Page, Arizona

This is a meander in the Colorado River just south of Lake Powell and the Glen Canyon Dam. The river enters the photo from the right and runs very slowly here allowing algae to grow giving the water a greenish cast in places.

Sorry, but "weak knees" prevented me from getting any closer to the 1000 foot drop.
This was taken with an 18-200mm zoom lens (at 18mm) and is SOOC. I started to adjust contrast, sharpen, etc but it looked better to me as is.

This was the second attempt at this shot. When we tried the first, it had just finished raining and the remnants of low clouds were filling the canyon. We went into Page for lunch and then hiked back to the rim a few hours later when all was clear.
