The Unearthly Beauty of Antelope Canyon

A stunning, other-worldly experience, the Antelope Canyon in Arizona is one of the most stunning slot canyons in the world.  Photography is necessarily difficult from the depths but these shots are amazing.
Over the thousands of millennia it took to create the full effect the water slowly but inexorably made the corridors of the canyons deeper and steeper. The hard edges of the rock were inevitably worn down and formed the flowing shapes on the rock face. So it was not the work of mighty and ancient Navajo spirits (perhaps…) but of the sheer tenacious persistence of the elements.

Just don't ever go in there during monsoon season -- flash floods come unannounced and numbers of folks have been swept away and drowned in the past. Beautiful place to die, though!

I grew up right next to Antelope Canyon (Page, AZ), we used to sneak into the canyon at night and it was insanely spooky. Incredible place :)
