Wow, I'm so jealous - I'm assuming this is antelope canyon? I've been wanting to visit for a long time! What a beautiful shot and great capture of very difficult lighting conditions. 8.

This is a magical shot - the lighting and the colors are so robust. My pick for a top 5 finish.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

A popular subject, but one that one never tires of, especially if it is done well, like here. A magical place that I would love to experience one day. For now, I content myself with images such as this, which displays the splendor and beautiful light found amongst these magnificent boulders. Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2007 12:19:33 PM
I always love seeing this subject. It never gets old and this is beautifully captured. The colors are so warm and wonderful. I hope to one day get a chance to shoot something like this. Well done! 10

One of these days I will make it to Antelope Canyon. Photos like this only make me want to go there more. Beautiful light and color.

Sweet! The bit of dust helps reveal the shaft of light without blocking too much of the background. Excellent control of the light and contrast.

This is breathtaking!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I have read about the canyons and the weird shapes water has carved through them. The lighting is superb, the colours magical and overall the abstract nature of the photo lift it above many others. Well done.

I believe this is a sacred spot for photographers! I would love to visit here someday. The mist in the light is amazing.

Some day I wish to visit this place. I've seen shots from here before, and they always amaze me when done well. And this one amazes me. A very fitting title too. (maybe the shots I've seen before are yours also, I don't know, but very, very cool) Great job!

I've seen these a million times but again, another stunning capture. Well done.

Great! It really took my eyes a second to focus and figure out what was going on. As it was loading I thought it was a really low quality image of who knows what and then it finished and I got a good look in and wow! Quite the opposite. Lovely lines and colors.
