A Canyon At Peace

Antelope Canyon, Arizona, USA

There are infinite view points within Lower Antelope Canyon, but I kept on seeing faces of time carved by years of erosion to the Navajo sandstone rock which line the canyon walls.

This set of images portrays the peace and quiet of the slot canyon in the black and white photograph through to the more abrasive windy and dusty aspect.

Photo tours are available at both Upper and Lower Antelope Canyon through Dixie Ellis Canyon Tours.

A Heavenly Moment

Lower Antelope Canyon, Arizona

The stunning interior of Antelope Canyon allows you to experience many extraordinary views, some of them by occasionally peering skywards. The thin strata of ‘flowing’ Navajo sandstone is caused by millennia of flash flooding and erosion leaving what is now one of the most magical places to visit, experience and photograph.

Lower Antelope Canyon photography tours are available from Dixie Ellis Tours and well worth taking.

Canyon Glow – Antelope Canyon

Page, Arizona, USA

Inside a slot canyon are endless surreal rock formations that make up a rich geology. The Upper and Lower Antelope located near Page in Arizona are two of the most spectacular ones to be found within this Colorado Plateau area. Shaped by erosion and the movement of tectonic plates, these extraordinary labyrinths twist and turn through the red slot canyons.

The interplay of shadows and light over the water scarred walls help to turn photographs into wonderful abstracts. There are many open slot areas, where at the right time of day, the sun shines down vertically producing a light trail as it lights up the slot floor area. Water that gushes through these walls flows into Lake Powell, which feeds the Colorado River a short distance away.

 

 

Lower Antelope Canyon

Arizona, USA

Lower Antelope Canyon is a slot canyon located on Navajo land close to Lake Powell and the town of Page in Arizona. There is also a second and more visited Upper Antelope Canyon a few miles away. Both are susceptible to flash flooding in the monsoon season and can be completely flooded with little prior warning.

Lower Antelope Canyon, (or “spiral rock arches” as the Navajo describe them), attracts more photographers due to the special ‘photographer tours’ on offer, and also draws larger numbers of casual sightseers than in Upper.
