Upper Antelope Canyon II

Upper Antelope Canyon is a slot canyon located near Page, Arizona. The Navajo call Upper Antelope Canyon Tse' Bighanilini, which means "the place where water runs through rocks". This shorter (than nearby Lower Antelope Canyon) canyon is accessible only through guide services licensed by the Navajo Nation. The image shows some of the wall structure looking straight up about 1 p.m. Imaged in June 2003.

I'll Take That As a Complement!

"Surprising?". Yes, I suppose many of the photos are looking down the length of these wonderous canyons. As were most of mine! Unfortunately, I forgot the tripod in the truck and was restricted to handheld photography for two hours. But, I still walked away with a few good shots, despite the long exposure times, including this one.

I agree...

with Romuald. It´s a very original pic. Some times the fact of no carry gear can have surpisings rewards.

Re: I agree...

Heh-heh. And sometimes forgetting the gear can give unexpected surprises. Because I didn't have a tripod I was leaning against the canyon walls to brace myself for the several second exposures. During one such time someone came up pointed at the wall right next to my ear and said, "Here! See it?". And the person with her said, "Oh yes! It IS a black widow spider!".

Re: I agree...

It's been years since I've seen a black widow around my home. But I find fiddlebacks (brown recluses) inside my home at least weekly this time of year. Much more dangerous than a black widow because their painless bite literally causes the skin to die and fall away after a few weeks leaving a big, open wound that can take months to heal. mark d.
