This past spring I decided I needed a change of scenery. To challenge myself photographically I looked for a place that was as different to home as possible. I travelled to a small town named Page in northern Arizona, population 9,000. It was home base for my photographic journey, which included Lake Powell, the Colorado River, the Grand Canyon and the best of all Upper and Lower Antelope Canyons.
The Antelope Canyons are a photographers dream. At the right time of day, when the sun is high in the sky and it is too hot and bright to photograph anywhere else, the canyons come alive with beams of light streaming through. With no horizon line, you can angle your camera up, down, vertical, horizonal, diagonal, any way you want and get amazing abstract patterns from the rock and the light.
