This is the third image of the Upper Antelope Canyon. Like yesterdays, the thumb nail isn't a grabber, you have to see the enlarged image. This image really gives you an idea of the texture and the lighting of the sandstone looking toward the surface.

If you go to the area also consider going accross the road to Lower Antelope Canyon. I did't have time to visit this one. My understanding is that you have ladders to climb down to enter the canyon. It isn't as crowded and you don't need a reservation, just walk up pay the entrance fee and enjoy. The lower isn't as spectacular I'm told.

I am attaching a workshop photo of the Jeep that carried the group from downtown Page on the wild ride to the canyon.

PP: RAW processed with Capture NX - small crop, sharpening, sizing and frame.

Again, thanks for continuing to travel with us on our Road Trip - I have enjoyed your company.

Hi Daniel

Marvellous texture & lighting on the red rocky surface of the canyon. Superb sharpness & good use of a vertical frame. Tfs!

Hello Daniel,

Nice textures, light and colors. TFS


Antelope Canyon! An inexhaustible mine of inspiration! And there again, a success! TFS Daniel, alain

Hi Daniel
Magnificent natural sculptures, natures provides us many amazing and eye pleasing surprises, this is certainly one of them. Very well captured image. I'm sure in a larger format this could be mistaken for a painting. Thank you.


Hello Daniel
Well done, very sharp and clear shot. It's well composed and the exposure is very good. Good job!

I saw your abstract verion of this and then went looking for the original. I like this one better -- just my opinion. This is stunning with perfect curves and colours and focus and DoF. Did you go here on a photography workshop or is it easy to find on your own. TFS. K2

wow great shot and realy nice texture and colors, very good framing and angle, congrats
