Sunset at Horseshoe Bend

During my visit to the Grand Canyon National Park last Thanksgiving, I did a day trip to shoot some slot canyons near Page and on my return journey I decided to stop by at Horseshoe Bend for the first time and to shoot sunset there.
During this holiday period the location of course was like a zoo! I have usually no issues of standing close to the cliff edge, but with hundreds of people around I was really worried that someone with a selfie-stick would accidentally bump me of the edge.
So while I placed my tripod literally inches away from the edge, myself I stood quite 2+feet away and used the remote shutter cable to take the images. This is taken with an ultrawide angle lens to allow me to capture the whole scene!
This composition is of course pretty standard for this location, but the sunset turned out to be quite cool!!!
