This photograph was taken in mid-summer, at mid-day, in one of the deeper slot canyons of northern Arizona, Antelope Canyon. As sandstone formations on the Colorado Plateau are carved by fast moving streams, narrow and deep slot canyons sometimes result. The light which enters this canyon is reflected off the narrow sandstone walls and may range in color from golden yellow to purple, depending upon the illumination angle, the type of rock and the light intensity.
