[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Antelope Canyon is a slot canyon in the American Southwest. It is located on Navajo land east of Page, Arizona. Antelope Canyon includes two separate, photogenic slot canyon sections, referred to individually as Upper Antelope Canyon or The Crack; and Antelope Canyon or The Corkscrew.

The power of water is thrilling.

Antelope Canyon was formed by erosion of Navajo Sandstone, primarily due to flash flooding and secondarily due to other sub-aerial processes. Rainwater, especially during monsoon season, runs into the extensive basin above the slot canyon sections, picking up speed and sand as it rushes into the narrow passageways. Over time the passageways eroded away, making the corridors deeper and smoothing hard edges in such a way as to form characteristic 'flowing' shapes in the rock.

Hello Peter,
Another wonderful image from Antelope Canyon. This POV give us a great look at the beautiful wavy and curved markings formed by erosion. Colors are gorgeous and overall exposure is good. Not an easy angle to obtain correct exposure since you had full sun to deal with as it reflects off of the top rim. Well done!!
