Located on Navajo Nation land, the slot canyons offer endless photo opportunities and also a great introduction to the other worldly geology of the Southwest. From a photography standpoint, Lower Antelope Canyon is a truly wondrous location for literal and abstract images of water sculpted sandstone. The strongest slot canyon images are created using reflected light, which showcases both the interplay of the close canyon walls and the striated rock surfaces.
On this day, we were graced excellent overhead skylight and radiant glow of the striated Navajo Sandstone walls. The endless foot traffic of tourists stirred up lots of dust (fine sand) into the air. With the thick dusty air as a "natural" filter, I was fortunate enough to capture one of my favorite photos of a canyon light beam photos to date .
