Upper Antelope Canyon is a very narrow slot canyon created in Navajo sandstone in northern Arizona where it is designated a Navajo Tribal Park. It is periodically swept by powerful flood water that scour the walls and remove the sandy floor. Then more sand sweeps in with the wind. It’s famous among photographers.
This is one of the many shots I took during my much too brief tour of the canyon. It was definitely on my bucket list.
A great valentine from the rock bottom of your heart!
