The Goosenecks

The Goosenecks


Slightly off of the beaten path, Goosenecks State Park was a worthwhile stop on our itinerary. It’s a lesser known location than Horseshoe Bend on the Colorado but every bit of a great shooting spot. At home they would be called oxbows and not nearly as deep but here in Utah they have been named the goosenecks. A repeating pattern of back and forth loops like the hard candy you see at Christmas time. I would liked to have gotten more of the river in the foreground but the slope got steeper on the loose shale in front of me, so I took the safer choice of staying where I was. I hope you can see the green of the foliage at the edge of the San Juan River.

In the best light…
