I had always been mesmerized and wanted to shoot Horseshoe Bend in Page, AZ. It is a 270 degree bend in the Colorado River and the scenic point has a 1,000ft drop. Taken in late summer it was monsoon season in Arizona. All afternoon spot thunderstorms rolled through the area. At sunset I was lucky enough for several thunderstorms to remain near Horseshoe Bend. As the sun dipped below the horizon the spot thunderstorms lit up in vertical beams of orange and red. It was the most spectacular sunset I had ever witnessed and til this day has become ingrained in my memory.
