Next stop: Antelope Canyon

I am absolutely in love with these photos from Antelope Canyon. Antelope Canyon is a formation right outside of Page, Arizona. There are two part of the canyon, Upper and Lower, accessed only with a Navajo guided tour. The canyon was formed by years of rain, carving slowly through sandstone. They estimate that every four feet is 100 years worth of erosion. The Canyon is at least 25ft high, but that is just an estimate.

I took a special photographer’s tour, which gives you a little more time in the canyon. To get the light streams the guides will toss up a handful of sand into the light beams. Special shout out to my guide Patrick, from Antelope Canyon Tours, he helped tons in getting the best shot. Check out their site here http://www.antelopecanyon.com The canyon is crowded and narrow, so taking long exposure shots is a little bit difficult. Patrick helped stop the crowd and angled us so we could get the best shots.

The more abstract shots are usually looking up the canyon, rather than through it. If you tour don’t forget to look up!

I tried to narrow down these to the smallest amount possible, but everything in this canyon is gorgeous! Page, Arizona also has Lake Powell, and the horseshoe bend in the Colorado River. A wonderful town to visit in what is Navajo country. Be sure to make reservations for a tour of the canyons!

 

With love,

Josie
