River Bend

Horseshoe Bend, Arizona

The Colorado River north of the Grand Canyon has this amazing U-shaped bend where the river makes a 180 degree change in direction.

The cliffs in this area are eroding, and have sheer drop-offs and I am not good with heights. I looked everywhere and found one spot, sitting on a secure rock where I could place the tripod at its lowest height, close to the edge and capture the photograph with a wide angle lens.

It took a number of hikes out to this location to determine the best time of day to be there to avoid shadows on the walls of the canyon. There are some other possibilities I would like to explore there so I guess we'll just have to go back again someday.

Fine Art Archival Print (Print Only)

River Bend print

Our fine art prints are made with Kodak Professional Endura Metallic Paper.  This paper gives the image a distinctive, glossy and metallic finish offering exceptional visual depth resulting in an almost 3D like appearance.  They are mounted to a thin, stiff mounting board, will be shipped flat and ready to take to your local frame shop for framing.

Metal Print, Ready to Hang

This is a relatively new medium created by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets.  The surface is extremely durable, the colors are vibrant and the images take on an almost magical luminescence.  The ultra-hard scratch resistant surface is waterproof and can be cleaned easily.  They include a rear mounting frame with a wire hanger that is inset from the outer edge holding the print ¾” off the wall and are ready to hang.

This takes our fine art print to the next level using the same Kodak Professional Endura Metallic Paper permanently face-mounted to acrylic that is ¼ inch thick with an added Dibond backing and rear mounting frame resulting in a beautiful piece of artwork that is ready to hang.
