Silhouette at Dawn at Horseshoe Bend

As you saw in yesterday's photo, Horseshoe Bend was very dramatic. While we as photo students were taking photos of Horsehoe Bend, one of our photo instructors, Michael Madsen, took this fabulous silhouette of the students at dawn.

This photo captures the colors on the horizon and all of the tripods and students spread out over the rocks.

Wilson Wyatt and Michael Madsen were great instructors and they both helped me learn my Nikon D90 much better. Wilson Wyatt's stunning photos can be seen at Wilson Wyatt Photography. Wilson organizes great photo tour trips.

Michael is an architect but also does commercial photography and design. You can see his fabulous photos at Michael Madsen Natural Photography.
You also can check out his creative photography at Heart Rocks. And, yes, he has lots of creative heart rocks in natural settings.

Tomorrow I will post a photo taken of me by Michael Madsen at the top of Horseshoe bend after the darkness passes and you can see what the abyss and the 1,000 foot drop really looks like in daylight.

This is such a pensive shot. I can almost hear the muted sounds as you were all setting up. The color of the sunrise is subtle, everything about this is subtle. This must be a very good instructor, indeed.

I love the silhouettes. The tripods and such look sort of alien-y, but it fits in quite well. Wonderful photo.

What an interesting silhouette. Everyone is so busy in the early morning hours setting up for those perfect shots. Really enjoyed the photos from your instructors

I wish there were photo trips where I live organized by someone who knows how and what to teach us who are too lazy to read a book/internet tutorial, and prefer to learnd hands-on... :) Wonderful photo! At first I thought you stumbled upon a bunch of amateur astronomers :-D

Is this a popular photographer's location to shoot sunsets/sunrises or are there other attractions? Beautiful silhouettes.

That must have been so neat. The waiting and anticipation. Then the daylight comes.

As a Nikon girl I approve the D90. Great camera. This is such a marvellous image, the colours, the tones, the silhouette. Love it.
