This bend in the Colorado River is getting plenty of attention from those looking for the Grand Canyon. It is located approximately 140 miles from both the South Rim and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon – but only 5 miles from the beginning of Grand Canyon National Park.

Photography Tips

Wide angle (14 mm) tripod and being very, very early in the morning, it is very crowded and it is only possible to take this picture from a specific point.

This location is quite crowded during the day and even more so for sunset. Arrive early to ensure you can secure a spot at the edge of the canyon. Horseshoe bend can be difficult to photograph a sunset due to the highlights in the sky and the dark shadows in the canyon. I used several images (over and under-exposed) and combined them in Lightroom to create this HDR image.

Travel Information

Horseshoe Bend is located a short distance south of Page AZ along Hwy 89 (between mile markers 544 & 545). There is a parking lot at the location however it fills up well before sunset (another reason to get here early). A 1 km hike from the parking lot to the canyon edge. The last time I was here (March 2019) the Park Service was improving the parking lot and walking trail. They had also installed some safety railings around a portion of the rim however most of the rim was unprotected ... be careful. Bring drinking water - it's a desert.

This would be perfect to add as "Behind the Scenes" for your other photo of Horseshoe Bend. The scene matches the description in your Photography Tips. Thank you for sharing.

How did you manage to get such clear reflections on the water while shooting from pretty far up?
