A Day at Antelope Canyon

Since I discovered Antelope Canyon in December of 2009 it has been a goal to get back as soon as possible. When Travis and I were planning our trip to Nebraska to shoot the Sandhill cranes I figured this was the time. So after shooting the cranes we headed west to Page, Arizona. Yesterday we spent the day shooting both Lower and Upper Antelope Canyon. Here are a few images from the day.

We shot Lower Antelope Canyon during mid-day from 10:00am to 2:00pm. The 4 hour photographer pass gives one a good amount of time in the canyon but it just doesn't seem long enough. The first four images are from this trip thru the canyon.

After doing Lower we headed across the highway to the parking lot for Upper. After a bite to eat we headed up the wash with a guide around 3:30 in the afternoon. The canyon was quite dark given the time of day we visited but it was light that I really liked. The subtle light accented the darkness of the canyon. Upper is darker inside than Lower and I like my images to reflect that quality.

The following four images are from Upper Antelope Canyon.

This next December I will be traveling thru Page again on my way out to California for Christmas. Guess where I'll be stopping.
