This is Antelope Canyon, near Page, Arizona. From a flat vista, you arrive at a small fissure in the earth. Climbing down some ladders, you arrive at the bottom of the slot, about 100 feet down. The slot is formed by rushing water that flows across the desert in storms or flash floods. The water and debris scours and sculpts the sandstone into the formations seen here. During the mid-day hours, the sun appears overhead and provides the changing sections of shadow and light.

I spent about 5 hours in the canyon with my camera and tripod waiting for the right light conditions. This in one of my favourite shots.
