In June 2010 my travels returned me to Page, Arizona for the second time in as many years. The previous year I had toured at a friend’s suggestion the Upper Antelope Canyon. It was very interesting, but was a guided tour and left me a little frustrated as I was unable to take pictures of the famous slot canyon as too many other tourists were inside and didn’t realize that you shouldn’t use a flash for such photography. On my second time through, still wanting to try my hand at this iconic location, I ventured further down the road to Lower Antelope Canyon.
My intent was to focus on more specific areas of the sculpted sandstone walls. I wanted to create a series of four photos which I could frame and use as a series on my wall, so when I was invited to submit a series to Let’s Be Wild, I knew I had just the thing as I had similar intents of creation when I ventured into the cool shade of the narrow slot canyon two years ago.
