Shot this on a tour of the canyon in May 2010. Lots of people in the canyon on this day, kinda like shopping on black friday. We waited for the area to clear and our guide tossed some sand to catch the light coming through. I shot this on a tripod using an 8 second exposure at f/8. We spent about 2 hours in the canyon shooting and this ended up being my favorite shot. Going at mid day will get you the beams of light coming through canyon any other times will get you the cool colors and textures.
