An Ethereal Ascension

An Ethereal Ascension


Print Info

A light beam shines down into a narrow slot canyon during the middle of the afternoon. This slot canyon, known as Canyon X is not nearly as famed as its counterpart, Antelope Canyon, but still has some unique features. Canyon X is formed by the same wash that shaped Antelope Canyon over millions of years.

Unlike its counterpart, you do not have to partake in combat photography to get a picture of its light beam. Only a certain amount of photographers are allowed at one time, which allows for an enjoyable experience. I was lucky to capture this light beam, as the tour guide informed me, this would probably be the last day in 2014 it would be fully visible. I am also happy to announce the photo was selected to be featured in the 100 Wonders of the World Photo Festival in St. Petersburg, Russia.
