Last week, I was in Phoenix for work. Because it had been so long since I was last there, I bookended the work-week with two fun weekends. The first weekend was spent visiting all the stores and restaurants that I had been missing. The second weekend was a girls’ weekend that I had been planning since January.
I’d always wanted to see Antelope Canyon but never made it north to do the tour when I lived there. Determined to make it happen, I asked all the girls in the office to join me on a little road trip. Five of them took me up on the offer. One of the spots that we checked out on our way to the canyons was Horseshoe Bend. It’s a part of the Grand Canyon where the Colorado River has carved out a horseshoe shape in the rock. It’s actually the most photographed spot in Arizona.
Here are a few photos that I took with my new Nikon 1 camera. I was pretty impressed with how great the photos came out with minimal processing. (I only adjusted the tone and made the last image black & white.)
