Photography of sunset at Horseshoe Bend

After spending the day at Lake Powell, then a dinner at town Page, I took the direction to Horseshoe Bend, one of the most photographed areas on the Colorado River. I want to photograph the sunset.

I park on the praking, and walk short 15 minute hike, up the hill and down the other side.

Horseshoe Bend is located on US 89 about 4 miles / 6 km south of Page.
From Page, take Lake Powell Blvd south and turn left on US Highway 89 1.5 miles / 2.4 km past the intersection of US 89 and AZ 98, turn right.

There are not many people. The view is breathtaking. Better than I could have imagined. I stay here, to take photographs, until the night is completely black. Then I return to the car park, walking in the sand with a small flashlight.
