I really liked shooting in lower Antelope.    Hardly anyone was there, which let me really take my time so I could find (hopefully) a new composition.

Thanks for the compliment.  I took this shot at around 9:30 a.m., and by 9:35 the light had changed.  Slot canyons are beautiful, but they're a challenge.  I suppose that's why I like them so much.

Very nice. Much more interesting than most of the more conventional (i.e., more cliched) shots.

Nice shot!

I really like that place!!  The last time I was there, I didn't move more than 5ft in 3 hours. Every time you turn around, the light is different and a whole new shot shows itself.
Keep up the good work.

Thanks--I was hoping for something a bit off the norm.  I got some nice angled shots, and I've got some interesting B&W conversions, as well.  

And--err--I do have a lot of the beam-of-light images from Upper Antelope, as well, so I've got the cliches covered.

I know what you mean about not moving.  All of my shots--over 80 in just a few hours--were taken within 100 feet of each other.  The hard part was visualizing an image because there are literally thousands of perspectives to shoot from.

Luckily, I arrived a week after a major flash flood hit the canyons.  I was lucky because I wasn't there at the time of the flood, and I was lucky because the lower half of the canyon was still flooded.  If forced me to slow down and look over every inch of the upper part of the canyon.

Another view, this time a detail in the canyon wall.  I really like the contrasts in the image, which was fairly ordinary before I converted it to B&W.

How do you get someone to leave you alone for five hours? The tour people wanted 20 dollars for every thirty minutes I was there.

That was my experience, as well.
