Upper Antelope Canyon

Posted by
Don Smith (California, United States) on 4 June 2008 in Landscape & Rural.

I was fortunate to capture a couple images of both larger rooms with no people on a recent trip to Upper Antelope Canyon in Page, Arizona. Our guide would block the rooms for a brief time to allow us to get images without the human form. The light was tricky and my exposures were set based on information from a quick check of my Canon 1Ds's histogram and a visual on my LCD. I would spot meter on what I felt was the most important tone in the scene. Fortunately, most of the exposures worked out, including this one from what is called Room 2. The wind was gusting so hard that earlier tours were recommended not to bring out a camera. Our photo tour was cancelled due to the high winds and threat of thunderstorms which can cause flash floods in the canyons. We were fortunate in that the winds subsided during our tour (we were relegated to the sightseer's 1-hour tour).
