Dramatic Horseshoe Bend

Horseshoe Bend is one of those locations which is worth going both at sunset and at sunrise. In the latter case, the sun will be in your back but will illuminate the sandstone with its warm light. When you get a nice thunderstorm to make the sky a little more dramatic, you get a recipe ...

The Oasis

Finding some grass and a small pool in the middle of White Pocket is really a fun sight, considering the rest of the area mainly consists of stones with such interesting structure and color.

White Pocket in Arizona has got to be one of the most fascinating places I've ever seen. It's like nothing else out there, with such a huge diversity of formations ranging from cauliflower type of rocks to sandstone, with swirls and waves all over the place.

If you're a true photographer and if you have limited time in Page, you will want to stay away from Upper Antelope Canyon, too crowded, and you will favour Lower Antelope Canyon, which I found more ...
