Description

This abstract looking shot is for real. It is from the upper antelope (slot) canyon. Antelope Canyon is sometimes called Corkscrew Canyon, for the twisted features inside. Probably one of the most photographed places in the world, it is carved, day in & day out, by forces of nature. It pays to be there in the mid-morning (~ 10 AM). Next best time would be mid-afternoon (~ 2 AM) to get vivid colors. The position of the sun and the season also makes a difference. Light can make all the difference, right ! And do make sure to take care of Daylight saving time. As if DST is not confusing enough, Page(AZ) the nearest city does utilize DST but the Navajo nation (inside which the slot canyon is located) does employ DST. And when you are there, please don’t use flash. It does more harm to the shots than you know :) Even the best of the photographs don’t do enough justice to this place. You just need to be there to experience it and see for yourself.
