Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth

Eternal Light
Eternal Light | Antelope Canyon | 2012

To honor the upcoming Earth Day, this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge bears the title “Earth” to celebrate this planet on which we live.

For me, the ethereal atmosphere in Antelope Canyon perfectly symbolizes the beauty and perseverance of nature. The powerful flow of water once carved out these slot canyons in the barren landscape of Utah over the course of thousands of years, and the sun shining into the narrow canyon has created the magic beams of light in the past and will continue to do so for all future. Let’s all join in protecting the magic of our planet earth.

Photo taken with a Canon Power Shot G12, image specs 0,6 sec @ f/8 and ISO 100, camera was mounted on a tripod.

Have a great Thursday!

  1. Hi!
    Nice post! I’m making posts about scientific explanations behinde everyday appearance, so if you have time and will please go and check it out! If you like it please follow me, I follow you.
    Thank you! 😀

  2. Beautiful photo! That is one of the canyons still on my list to see. Last time I was in that are I almost made it. In the last moment there was a flash flood and they canyon was closed 🙁

    1. Yes, we did utilize a Navajo Guide. To capture the light rays in Antelope Canyon, it makes sense to book a tour around noon. That also leaves time to visit other nearby slot canyons like Rattlesnake and Owl earlier in the morning. Also, I recommend to book a photography tour. You can take your tripod inside and the Navajo guides do a great job, roping off other visiting groups for a few minutes so you can take these marquee shots in a seemingly empty canyon.

  3. We visited Page and Antelope Canyon on our move out to California. It was one of the neatest experiences! I got some beautiful images, but none with the rays of light. Beautiful!

    1. You are so welcome, go and see it! There are a few other canyons like Rattlesnake and Owl who are also very beautiful. And in Rattlesnake we actually saw a Rattlesnake 🙂 but it was early in the morning and it wasn’t moving.
