I nicknamed this image Korea’s Horseshoe Bend after Horseshoe Bend on the Colorado River near Page, Arizona. The Korean version doesn’t have the over the top grandeur and raging Colorado. Instead, it has a more subtle, serene beauty…like everything else in South Korea.

    • I have seen only one other horseshoe bend similar to this. It’s in Glacier National Park in NW Montana. As spectacular a place as it is, it does not compare at all with the likes of this place you found in South Korea. I was wondering where you were situated when you made this capture. The perspective is quite unique. Then I read one of your comments describing your “vantage point was from a very tall footbridge leading to a Buddhist Temple on a mountainside.” This makes sense to me. What a beautiful scene upon which to meditate…

      • The thing about Korea and its beauty is that it is a subtle understatement which can prove even more powerful than the grand vistas and escarpments of the American West.
        …and then there is the exotic factor.

  1. Edge of Humanity Magazine: Thanks for liking my image Korea’s Horseshoe Bend taken from the edge a very high foot bridge with a low railing. In spite of my acrophobia, I seem to be fearless when I have a camera in my hand.
