Over the years, Lower Antelope Slot Canyon on the shores of Lake Powell near Page, Arizona, has become a favorite gathering place for photographers, tourists, and visitors from around the world.

The Navajo name for Lower Antelope Canyon is Hasdeztwazi or “Spiral Rock Arches.” Many years ago, herds of Pronghorn Antelope roamed freely in and around the canyon, which explains the English name.

This incredible canyon has been created over many thousands of years by the relentless forces of water and wind, slowly carving and sculpting the sandstone into forms, textures, and shapes which we observe today.

The views in Lower Antelope Canyon change constantly as the sun moves across the sky, filtering lights softly across the stone walls. These ever-moving sun angles bounce light back and forth across the narrow canyon’s walls, creating a dazzling display of color, light, and shadow.

The slot canyon at its floor is very narrow, requiring a little manoeuvring around rock walls in some places but the one hour walk through is a very rewarding experience.

Taken with Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH1 point & shoot on 18 June 2013.
