Don has been going to Page to photograph slot canyons and Horseshoe Bend for a number of years. Slot canyons have turned out okay but the goose neck for what ever the reason still give problems; one of the reasons is lens. Don has photographed Horseshoe Bend many times with 35mm cameras and with lens from a fish eye one up. Don and a good friend Ken Doo went to Page early in 2007 to photograph the area; this time in medium format. They went to Horseshoe Bend and both decided that Mamiya’s new wide-angle 28mm lens (17mm equivalent 35mm focal length) would be perfect; however neither had one. Don got the 28mm November 2007 just before he went to shoot the South Rim of the Grand Canyon in December. To make a long story short since he has the lens (and Ken still doesn’t) he had to see if what they predicted was true.
