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!

All these photos are from past Thursday and I took them on my Delta flight from Portland to Los Angeles  on my way home to Nuremberg. Camera was my Olympus PEN-F with the mZuiko 12-40mm F/2.8 Pro Zoom. I post the images in sequence from Mount Jefferson that we passed soon after Takeoff from PDX to the streets of Los Angeles while landing in LAX. For the full series continue after the jump….
