Lady in the Wind

Morning in Lower Antelope Canyon. The day has finally come to visit one of the most photographed canyons. I had been looking forward to this for many days and even struggled to sleep the night before. Seeing it with my own eyes was amazing, especially how the light bounces around the various walls creating different shades of color. We decided to book a tour with Carol Bigthumb. It was Carol's mother who discovered Antelope Canyons as a child. Our tour guide, Gabe, did not disappoint at all. He guided us through the canyon, held the crowds back, and pointed out the best places to shoot.


This particular shot shows a lady-like figure with her hair swept back by the wind. Hopefully I'll get to return someday to shoot Lower Antelope Canyon in the afternoon when colors are supposedly different than the morning colors.

    What a phenomenal image of Antelope Canyon the light and textures of the sandstone are brilliant. Many photographers make this adventure but each and everyone has a unique experience all their own. I sometimes wonder if the canyon realizes it has a new visitor so it shifts the light perfectly to expose a special view just for you ~ I'm in awe of the perfect image you have captured of the "Lady in the Wind" her hair blowing back from her face, etched so superbly into the purplish hued sandstone each line moving with elegance down the surface of this natural wonder. With your mastery of photographic skills you have sculpted your own subtle vision using the play of light, color and shadows as your tools. This beautifully crafted image definitely reflects the very rewarding experience of your visit to this magically wonderful canyon of spirits.
    Bravo on creating this more than splendid scene!!

    Better than the shot of her I got there, but what a place! I had something like this in mind but couldn't get wide enough, but at the same time I don't remember the left side being like this. Must have been a clean miss by me! EXCELLENT shot!
