Sunset Over Horseshoe Bend In Page Arizona
Arizona

I shot this image on a terrible windy day in October 2009 when traveling to the IVRPA conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

We stopped for a night in Page, Arizona but before that, Matthias Taugwalder and Sandra Mexa and I, watched the sunset over Horseshoe bend. It might look causal to you, but we where in the middle of the Arizona desert with lot's of wind blowing from all sides. Maybe that's why is no one else there except us three!
We had to leave in a hurry under a sand storm. I will only say that our exit back to the car on the other side of those dunes was not an easy one. At least for me it was a first time experience to be under a sand storm and quite a feat to get rid of all that sand all over me and my gear.

For those curious of you, I am holding a light sick, you know, those sticks that allow us paint with light ;-)

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
