Kachina Bridge from Overlook

Short telephoto  and normal shots. In the right you can clearly see how the bridge formed. The bridge is carved from a projection into the canyon, which the water "U"ed around. Erosion from both sides by the stream eventually broke through, and the river then cut through the bridge.
