At the Top of Horseshoe Bend

Michael Madsen, one of the photo instructors on the tour, took this photo of me after the sunlight came up.

It was much scarier when it was completely dark and the wind was blowing, although it is still pretty scary to have a 1,000 foot (302 meters) drop straight down in front of you and no guardrail.

You can see the beauty of the Colorado River and the red coloring of the rock in the photo.

I will share photos of the Vermillion Cliffs area during the next few days before we travel to the slot canyons. The slot canyon photos are awesome but it makes sense to build up to them.

It makes me nervous just to look at it. Glad I wasn't there.

glenda said...

This is really close to the edge! I would think this would make it a bit hard to concentrate on the shot. Very nice shot of you.

Don and Krise said...

The smile on your face tells us how happy you were to be there. What an opportunity, and you looked great here.

To be honest, I probably would have been too afraid to stand that close to the edge.
A weekend filled with courage and brightness for you.

Your canyon photos are incredible... and you say you are building up to the good ones? Oh my goodness! There is no way I would've stood on that cliff in any weather or time of day. So thank you for hopping out there with your camera & gear! :)
