Horseshoe Bend

Any keen photographers out there?

As a keen photographer I was wondering if there is a good time of the day to photograph Horseshoe Bend? We will be visiting Page 22 & 23 September.

Mid-morning until noon. In the afternoon the cliffs to the west throw shadow on the river.

Yes, earlier in the day. In the afternoon the sun is in your eyes.

Also look into sunset at Wahweap Overlook.

Looks like early morning is best at any time of the year.
