Most anyone who knows me is aware that I love the American Southwest. These images are from two slot canyons outside Page, Arizona…..Canyon X and Lower Antelope Canyon. The first image is the entrance to the latter canyon. The swirling rock patterns are created by flash floods that periodically rush through the canyons walls. Light enters from the canyon opening above and bounces down through the levels of rock creating a variety of colors and patterns. As the sun moves across the sky, these colors and patterns are gradually changing. All the images in which I’m included are self-portraits using a tripod and the camera’s self-timer.
