Horseshoe Bend and Lower Antelope Canyon

This day started with the most amazing scene of the Horseshoe Bend. After help from our tour guide on the best spot to photograph, I spent the next 30 minutes lying on my stomach at the edge of the cliff snapping pics. I felt my hands shaking, I was so close to the edge. I was also in total awe, which made for an exhilarating 30 minutes of photography. Crazy!! From there it was off to the Lower Antelope Canyon which was a similar experience to shooting in the other canyons. There was more light in this canyon and with the sun rays beaming in it made for some photos with strong highlights. You had to really get creative because of the lighting and also because of the losers posing with their iPhones and selfie sticks. Really? Really. Sheesh. Also, because of the tight space and the number of tourists, I couldn’t stop myself from telling people to move out of the way. Anyway it was a great day (long and strenuous) and I struggled to make it back to the car due to the 100 degree weather and the crazy steps to get up and out of the canyon at the end (we did this canyon from end to front) and with the walk back to the parking lot. Another quick shower, beers, camera check and cleaning before a great sushi dinner.
