[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the second image from Upper Antelope Canyon. If you are interested in information on this Slot Canyon read the notes for yesterday's posting.

What is amazing about a slot canyon is the illumination that penitrates the canyon passes through a small "crack" in the surface. The naked eye does not see these amazing colors and textures as you walk the interior of the canyon. Only through the camera's long exposure do the colors become vibrant and the textures evident. Just has to be seen.

The thumb nail probable doesn't do justice to the enlarged image.

PP: RAW with very little adjustment in Nikon Capture NX - sharpening and minor cropping - Framed and sized.

Hi Daniel

The tight framing gives this shot an abstract look & feel. Good color & sharpness, & a superb pov. A logical choice of a vertical frame. Tfs!

Hello Daniel.
Wow. You've been to Antelope canyon! It's a place I hope one day I will get to. I think it would be hard to take a bad photograph here. But that's not to take anything away from you. This image is beautiful. The shapes, colours and light are wonderful. You sure had a great road trip. I'm really enjoying your posts from this series. Well presented. Well done.
Best regards, Steve.
