This picture was taken in Antelope Canyon, a slot canyon near Page, Arizona, on the Diné (Navajo) Reservation. It was carved out of sandstone by the rushing waters of the monsoon rains. It reminds me of the fact that photographers could not make images without a gift from God: light. This image has won several awards. The very scene itself was a gift. I was finished taking pictures that day, or so I thought. But there was a small group of people by the entrance, and one person had a tripod set up. So I turned around to see what he was taking a picture of, and this is what I saw. The wind was kicking up fiercely that day, and there was a lot of sand and dust in the air. The sand got into my cameras and wrecked two camera bodies. Was it worth it? Absolutely!

I apologize for my very long absence. I have been incredibly busy, but I hope to be here more often in the future. I have missed all of you.

Excellent Pat. Many would kill for a chance for a shot like this.
Perfect composure, contrast and lighting.

What an incredible shot! It's like something out of a Science Fiction or fantasy movie. Ironic that the very dust that made the light-rays so prominent would also destroy the cameras in the act of capturing this incredible sight!
