Kisses from Above, Upper Antelope Canyon

I want to once again thank all of you for your outpouring of sympathy over the passing of my two friends. My family and I are starting to move on, as all of us must do in these situations, but your kind words have really helped.

Today's image is one taken during my Northern Arizona Workshop last month at Upper Antelope Canyon in Page, Arizona. As my partner Gary Hart so aptly described in his posting Heavenly Beam, Upper Antelope Canyon, Arizona, this is truly a cliche shot - done many times before by many photographers. That still doesn't diminish the beauty or my willingness to communicate the wonders and spiritualism I felt while roaming this marvelous slot canyon.

Unfortunately these slot canyons (both upper and lower Antelope) are being sought out by photographers and tourists worldwide. Though we appear to be alone during the capture of this scene, the truth is there were perhaps hundreds of others roaming this canyon with various tour groups. Capitalism is alive and well in Page, Arizona!

Nonetheless, I cannot fault one for wanting to experience the beauty of this canyon firsthand, I just wish the powers that be could regulate the flow of onlookers with a bit more discretion and order.
