USA - Antelope Canyon - Light and colours

Antelope Canyon. The perfect proof that Flickr is about more than sharing pictures only.


Beginning of this year, I started encountering more and more pictures here on Flickr of a beautiful canyon-like place, somewhere in the USA. I went to look for the exact location of this wonder of nature and decided to one day visit the place.


Months went by, and when we finally went to the States this summer, I remembered the place I had seen on Flickr. Looked it up on the map and it turned out to be almost on our route from San Francisco, through the Canyonlands to Salt Lake City. So we took it in and it turned out to be even more impressive in real life than what you manage to capture in a picture!


I present you: Antelope Canyon ;-)
