Oxbow Mirror

My previous post gave you the sunset at Oxbow Bend so I couldn’t resist and processed one of my shot from the morning sunrise at Oxbow Bend.  Oxbow Bend in the morning is like glass.  It’s almost a perfect mirror of water and so you can understand why so many photographers go to this spot to take a picture of this classic spot.  Most of the other photographers stayed up top on the platform, but I ventured down to water level for this shot. It’s such a beautiful place, something everyone should see once in their lifetime.  Hopefully from this picture you can understand why Horace Albright fought so hard to have this land preserved as a national park.

  1. Wow, this is so serene and beautiful. I like that you can see where a fish came to the surface and the little stick on the right. Super work!
