I just returned from a trip to Arizona and can now happily cross off one of my photographic bucket list items…slot canyons. I’ve been wanting to photograph Antelope Canyon from the time I first saw Peter Lik’s famous image. I know it’s been photographed by everyone but none the less its something I’ve always wanted to do.
The slot canyons are on Navajo land so the only way to access them is with a Navajo guide but even so if you want help with crowd control and be able to set up a tripod then your best bet is to book a photo tour which is what I did before leaving home. I’ll give you more information on the tour company I used and the tour I booked in a subsequent post.
I did two canyons that day with the first being Rattlesnake Canyon. This was a great canyon to start with as there were no crowds and a great way to start shooting and testing different settings and exposures.
