Three down, 97 to go in my Antelope Canyon series. . .just kidding folks. I really don’t have that many photos of the canyon but even if I did I won’t post more than a few, the canyon is beautiful but after a few photos they all look the same.

Antelope Canyon is at once one of the most breathtaking and tranquil places on earth. Gently carved from the Navajo sandstone over the course of countless millenniums, the slot canyons are majestic and narrow passages, just enough space for a small group to walk the sandy floor - and for the occasional shafts of sunlight to shine down from above.

Though dry most of the year, Antelope Canyon runs, and sometimes floods, with water after rains. It is the water, slowly wearing away the sandstone grain by grain, that has formed the beautiful and graceful curves in the rock. Wind has also played a role in sculpting this fantastic canyon.

I have seen many great photos of this canyon, and this is another of them. What an amazing place!! The rock looks like carved wood. I love the warm colors you've got here - all the orange tones, and the amazing detail. Very well done.

A great shot here, I love pictures of these canyons like this. Very great lighting and colors, beautiful picture. THanks!

no fair! this place its impossible to take a bad picture in this!

Hi Eleu
Great shot of this famous hot spot area
The curves are wondeful, nice composition with superb highlights and shadows
A color balance to decrease red tone will help

Bonjour Eleu,
Une autre jolie capture de ce canyon aux couleurs chaudes du soleil. J'aime beaucoup les formes rocheuses et les stries laissées par les années.
Merci et bonne journée.

Olá Eleu,
As much as take pictures of a place much visited, there is always a differente look, a differente angle, lights and colors to be discovered and you did with your picture.
(This picture reminds me a lot when I started studying photography on my own, an author and photographer Jim Zuckerman inspired me a lot.)


Beautiful done
Have a good day

Bonjour Eleu,

Quelle magnificence!!! c'est grandiose, belles couleurs de feu, c'est incroyable comme les années s'écrivent sur cet élément naturel.Félicitations pour ceci.
Amicalement et belle journée.

Ciao Eleu,

If I had not seen this picture in other
angles, say it was painted by hand!
The light here is perfect for defining the details
Beautiful angle and very good taste!


Hi Eleu
Beautiful foto. Extra colors.
Best regards

hello Eleu
there is amazing detail of texture on the rocks.....beautiful colors, very nice composition. its very beautiful place.


Bonjour Eleu,
Ces canyons ont quelque chose de fantastiques, en vignette on a l'impression qu'il s'agit d'un feu s'engouffrant dans une cavité naturelle!!!
Il n'en est rien, c'est beaucoup plus joli avec ces teintes orangée et cette lumière qui émane du haut inondant les parois qui en ont vu passer des siècles, voire des millénaires!!!

Hello Eleu

I like this one the best out of the three. very sharp and full of rich color. Nice work


Hi,a very well structured composition with fantastic details and colors.The place is truly inspiring.Best regards Otto.

Bonsoir Eleu,

A classic image but well treated. Good exposure with nice tone and good sharpness. At 2.5 sec I beleive you used a tripod or some kind of support. Image shows some nice texture. A photographer paradise and you did a good job there. TFS.
