Sometimes a little luck is involved in photography. This week I’m traveling through the American Southwest to photograph some of the main sites with a friend; Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, Death Valley, Zion, and Bryce to name a few. As we were logging miles between the Grand Canyon and Page Arizona, I was online checking google maps and came across a photo of Horseshoe bend. I had seen images of it before, and I had always wanted to see it and photograph it. I had no idea it was only 4 miles outside of Page, Arizona. We made a quick detour in our plans and luckily hit Horseshoe Bend in the best time of the day. A little luck can go a long way! It was a 1/4 mile hike to the overlook and it was worth all the sweat during midday sun when I saw the color of the river below….emerald green! Lucky!
It will take me a while to edit all of my photos from my current trip…but I think it will be worth it when you see all the photos of this recent road trip!
In the meantime, if you want to see more photography this Friday – check out Photo Friday at Briefcase to Backpack!
