Horseshoe Bends

Shooting the Horseshoe Bend, in Arizona, is always thrilling and scary because you're there, on the edge of the chasm, without any protection, and looking through the lens distorts greatly the perception of your position, worst if you do it through a fisheye lens. To have an idea it is enough to check the small canoas on the bank of the river. But, I think, it definitely worths the risk, this is what happens when shooting the iconic place with a fisheye: an incredible number of bends.
