It's a location that features on the pocket list of many photographers. Being my first time to visit March 2019 I still have the urge to return every now and then to capture the other worldly scenes of light trails stunning rock formation and shadows throughout these two natural wonders just out side of page, Arizona. The location really is a photographic gem, the texture on the walls of this natural Slot- Canyon (formed by water and massive flash flooding over the years) is incredible. In the summer months May-August the light beams streaming through the top of Upper Antelope offer an incredible scene to capture and display, and you're also nearby other amazing scenery such as Horseshoe Bend, to visit while you're there.
Which of the two Antelope Canyon do I want to visit?. On the face of it upper Antelope is the famous one due to the framatic light streams and is typically the one displayed in artwork around the world-but that doesn't make lower Antelope any less spectacular in companion when the sun isn't directly overhead. Antelope Canyon really is a special place but to a certain extent, a victim of it's own success. Many years back, this really was a quiet, peaceful, serene slot Canyon, that was explored by few. Photography, in parts is responsible for its overcrowding and rush once inside a sad consequence of the location becoming more and more popular as people share images of how magical it looks to friends all around the world.
Remember the Canyon is more special to many of the local people than any photographer can ever claim and part of out duty as visitors is not only to capture it on camera, but to also appreciate it with our own and experience a place on earth that is a true wonder of nature.
