Pool Canyon Hiker - 3rd Place National Parks Photo Contest Winner

3rd Place 2013 “Share the Experience” contest for the National Park Foundation.
Glen Canyon National Recreation Area - Lake Powell, UT 31-Oct-2011 3:50PM
Look carefully, is it real or...? can that be his shadow? This canyon housed a pool of water that was sheltered from any wind, making it a perfect mirror for the canyon walls lit by the late afternoon sun. This view creates the illusion of a hiker walking right along the edge of a cliff canyon wall. For additional interest, the image can be viewed normally or upside down
