Horshoe Bend in Arizona is one of the most incredible places I have ever been to. When I saw for the first time I was completely blown away. Before I pulled up my camera to take any kind of photos, I sat down at the edge of the rock and look down at the Colorado River. The place is so incredibly massive that you feel extremely small.
I have always wanted to visit this place. We had an RV and we camped out there until sunrise. We spend a couple hours there before we headed out. I must say this was one of the most epic road trips of my life. I am very happy to be able to share it with all you guys and to share this incredible photo that is a reminder of this incredible journey.

Here is one of the famous Horseshoe Bend in Page Arizona. I have seen so many photos of this place and have been wanting to shoot it, but I really wanted to get a different perspective, so I flew over it and shot this from the air.
We spend the night in an RV on the parking lot and woke up bright and early for sunrise. It was awesome and worth the early rise. Shortly after we headed to Antelope Canyon.
The Grand Canyon National Park
As the sun starts to go down the colors start to change, the mood sets, and the universe gets quiet.
For the next 15 minutes you can see the sun hide behind the Grand Canyon, like an orchestra performing in perfect harmony right before my eyes. I take a deep breath, take it all in, and smile.
This is what I love about photography, it’s an excuse to constantly see places like this, record a slice of time, and share it with the world.
These are my favorite shots of the Grand Canyon from my recent road trip to the West Coast.
Antelope Canyon Arizona
I have seen a million photos of this place, and I had always wondered what it was like, what it felt like, what it smelled like, and of course what it looked like in person.
I finally made it out there and it was truly amazing, seeing it for the first time was like unwrapping a present when your five years old under your christmas tree. The walls are so tall that when the sun light hits the rocks just right, they change colors like a rainbow during an afternoon rain shower.
We had a tour scheduled for 2pm, but lucky for us one opened up at noon. This is the best time to visit because the sun is directly over the canyon and you get more sun beams coming through. The tour guides are super cool, they grab handfuls of dirt from the ground and throw it in the air so you can get some shots of the beams coming through, it is truly magical.
I took lots of shots but these are some of my favorites. I will certainly be coming back some time in the near future. I will update this post soon with more photos from this place.
