Antelope canyon, near Page (Arizona) is a slot canyon. The lines and shapes in the sandstone are curved by the water from flash floods (sudden heavy rainfall) that fill the canyon in a very short period of time, and then forces its way out. During these flash floods the canyon is a dangerous place to be. But in good weather it is a photographers paradise.
The canyon consists of two parts, the upper and the lower canyon. Light entering from the narrow opening at the top, reflects on the sandstone in a variety of colours, depending on the amount of light and the time of day.
At noon on a sunny day, the upper canyon will reveal rays of sunlight entering from the top of the canyon. In the lower canyon the beauty is found in the details.
