Antelope Canyon

I've decided to sell some of my photos as greeting cards in my Etsy shop.
I am starting with four pictures I took in Antelope Canyon a few years ago.

Antelope Canyon is a fascinating slot canyon near Paige, Arizona. It's on Native American land which means you cannot just go there and enter the canyon. You have to pay an entrance fee and then wait for the Native American guide who will lead you to the canyon. The entrance to the canyon is so hidden that I wouldn't have found it without the Native American's help.

The light in the canyon is incredible and paints the slickrock in fabulous warm yellow, orange and red shades. I was there during winter, so the sun never really shone into the canyon, but the sun light made the rock glow.

It was unforgettable.

I've seen photos of Antelope Canyon before, and yours just reminded me why I want to see the place for myself. Amazingly beautiful.
