15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Joy at the Antelope Canyon

This photo was taken in the lower Antelope Canyon. The photo shows the different colors of the sandstone inside the canyon when lit from the streaks of natural light seeping through the slots within the canyon. This natural light through the canyon slots also accentuates the canyon's shapes and curves, carved into the rocks by water that flows through the canyons. The joy comes from the magnificent landscape before you, as you use your imagination to find your picture lit inside the canyon from natural light seeping through the sandstone formations over your head. In this picture I see Santa.
