"Awakening" Antelope Canyon, By Robert Park http;www.robert-park.com, a photo by Robert Park Photography on Flickr.
“Awakening” Antelope Canyon is one of the most famous and most photographed canyons on earth. It is beautiful - you gasp with wonder when you see sunlight dancing on the canyon’s sculpted walls as it picks up the red color and creates an etherial glow. The beams of light come from small cracks at the top as the sun passes overhead during certain times of the day and year. The beams do not last very long and will actually move across the width of the floor before your eyes until the beam disappears lasting a few minutes. You don’t really hike through it, you descend down ladders into it and wonder. It is extremely beautiful, with just the right combination of depth, width, length, rock color and ambient light. It is challenging to photograph here but if you are properly prepared and experienced, the results can be beyond words. It is a must, to experience this location of natural sculpture and glowing canyon walls of sandstone at least once in your lifetime. Location Antelope Canyon, © RobertPark www.robert-park.com/
