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

The Navajo name for Upper Antelope Canyon is Tse' bighanilini, which means "the place where water runs through rocks." Lower Antelope Canyon is Hasdestwazi, or "spiral rock arches." Both are located within the LeChee Chapter of the Navajo Nation.

Bago ba ang cam? So glad to see that you are trying slow shutter photography. The heart-shaped slit of the canyon is nice but a slight amount of additional contrast I think may be needed. I am guessing you live/work in Vegas where there are lots of national parks within reasonable distance. Ingatz

very cool shot, light and shadow (own and projected) are rich and moody.
the heart shape is nice and matches the colours.
well done!

Hello, Eleu,
Very good picture,

famous place. wonderful

This is a beautiful photo. The subtle streaks in the stone make it look like the sunshine is actually washing over the it.

Great shot, I love the way the light seems to flow through the rocks and I can see why it is the most photographed. I like the smooth lighting and the way if flows into the darkness.

Hello Eleu

Original and amazing shot. Without your note I wouldn't havee guessed what it is.The upper part looks like a woman's hair.
You offer a very artistic composition with that perfect crop and that liight that seems to comme from a kind of tunnel. The colors are warm and rich and the place where the eye is attracted to is well off centered.



well noticed, first time i see such a photo from this famous place

Antelope Canyon is a place who seems to bee more than merveillous!
your shoot with the heart is really great! well done and well seen too.

do you use a tripod? who do you make for the light par is not burned with 3seconds of? have you some filter?

Hi Eleu,
A well taken artistic photo.The heart shaped rocks leading one through to the mysterious sharp light and wondering whats at the end.The smooth texture and tonal range making unique points of interest.

Full fantastic!

Eleu, like how you saw this formation and captured its essence. Like another comment when I first saw this I thought it was formed material, then I clicked on it and was even more impressed.
This is nicely captured with the time frame used and colors add to the overall impact.

I have seen many photos of this place - but never one showing this HEART shape.
Super colours and details Eleu. And the lighting and shadows bring out many of the patterns
Thank you
