December 2002. A composite of 2 horizontal wide angle shots - hence the angle on the horizon line

Excellent shot; good work. You took it from south of the river, however. You posted the position north at a place called Muley Point. It's confusing, but if you go into Google Earth, and lower the perspective you'll see. Sorry to be critical because your photographs are magnificent.

Hank, thank you for your kind words, I really appreciate it. As to the position, I placed the picture at the place from which I shot it - a small parking lot at the end of a paved road which approaches the place from north. I never approached Goosenecks from south.

Hi Alex. Like you, I post place pictures from where I took them. The reason I noticed yours is that I made the exact same composite (we're poth tagged "Utah") so it had to be at the same spot. Then I drove all the way around to the north side which is called Muley Point. Because of the time of day, and the angle of the sun the Goosenecks don't seem as dramatic in the pictures I posted from there, but they're under "Utah" too. It was the fact that we not only took the same set of pictures, but made the identical panoramic composite that had me check the location.

Alex, I went back and checked, and you are absolutely right. I apologize. Both the state park and Muley Point are approached from the north; Muley Point is just further north.
