Description

My wife and I scrambled through this Spooky slot canyon. This particular spot was radiating with reflected light. My wife climbed down and I took her picture before she disappeared into the tight crevasse. I isolated her against the dark background, before she completely disappeared with her next step. The hardest part of taking this photo was that the slow shutter speed required my wife to hold completely still, while I hand-held the camera from a precarious perch above her. This is my favorite image of the trip.
