Photo Of The Day By Craig Bill
Photo By Craig Bill
Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Sunquest” by Craig Bill. Location: Arizona.
“This time I wanted to get the sun,” says Bill. “Over the past few trips to this Arizona slot canyon location, I was successful at capturing several great shots of Antelope Canyon. After my first couple shots, I wanted to change up the perspective some. For instance, I have shots that showed the popular rays of light that penetrate the canyon during high sun hours and shots that show only the wall colors with no sky. Both of these types of images are the most familiar of the slot canyons in this area. But I wanted different images this time around. I decided that I wanted to try nighttime shots showing the stars, nighttime shots that were light painted and one that didn’t avoid the bright sun but showcased it. By pointing the camera upwards, I slowly moved back and forth until the sun flare was just right. It is a risky shot because the extremes of exposure values are hard to control. But after a hike searching for the small spots where the sun broke through, I got it— This time I got the sun.”
