This image is Horseshoe Bend located just outside of Page, Arizona. The shot is taken from the overlook is 4,200 feet (1,300 m) above sea level, and the Colorado River is at 3,200 feet (980 m) above sea level, making it a 1,000-foot (300 m) drop. It’s hard to get the scale in a photograph but if you look at the centre of the river on the far shore you can see a person standing beside their boat.
