Photographer's Note

Antelope Canyon near Page, Arizona, is the Southwest's most popular slot canyon with photographers. The Upper Canyon is called "Tse bighanilini" by the Navajo people, meaning "the place where water runs through the rocks", and the Lower Canyon "Hasdestwazi", meaning "spiral rock arches".
The narrow slot canyon was created primarily by flash flooding carrying erosive sand through the narrow sandstone channels. The water created flowing patterns and smoothed hard edges in the layers of sandstone, which has colorful lines, patterns and textures.
The public is invited to visit the two Antelope Canyon sections by paying entrance to the Navajo Nation.
