Horseshoe Bend

After Buckskin Gulch we drove to Page, AZ and spent the night drinking beers around a campfire on the beach overlooking Lake Powell.  The next morning we had one more stop to make before driving 9 hours back home.  Downstream from Lake Powell’s dam is a bend in the river that looks like a horseshoe and standing on a ledge with a wide angle lens you can capture it.

For this trip to Utah Katharine bought a 9-18mm f4.0-5.6 lens for her micro four thirds camera.  If you’re a camera fanatic keep in mind it has a 2x crop factor, but it’s still a nice 18mm equivalent.  Also keep in mind this lens weighs .34 pounds (155 grams). The entire camera with battery, memory card and this lens weighs just over 1 pound!

Olympus E-PL2, ISO 200, 9mm, f/4, 1/800 sec
