Going through some old shots and I thought this one may be interesting, showing the scale of Antelope Canyon. I had hung back from the rest of our group on our way out of the Canyon hoping to get this last light beam and the horizontal beams also, knowing that this was a pretty tall order, when who should step into view but one of the group, also hoping for that last shot.

Thought you may like to see the scale of the place.

You should have got her to stand in the beam of light, star trek style Smile

Cool shot, well done!

It's on my list of must-see places. It's a welcome change to see a photo of the place with someone standing in it.

I've heard it can be a challenge to get a shot without people but never seen one with a person before - great to have a sense of the scale at last

Thank goodness he did step into the picture; he's provide perspective and it would have been impossible to see just how big it is. Super picture, any more hiding in the archives? helen

Thanks Alethea, I've seen lots of shots from this place but never with someone standing there, now we know the scale of the place. Love the light beam and colour too.

Thanks to everyone who commented and clicked on this one, it certainly shows the scale of the place for a change doesn't it.

In answer to he questions: Although she could see I was waiting for the shot, she did go and stand in the beam and do a star trek impression ! Very amusing but extremely annoying at the time as time was running out.

Yes I have quite a few shots I have not used on here, just about 50 or so !

Yes, I could have cloned her out, but I did manage eventually to take another one without her, so I just used this one to show the sheer size of this amazing place.

Glad you enjoyed seeing it !

Hello Alethea, many thanks for you kind expressions on my work...this is an amazing place with such beautiful rock formation...I like the balance of light detailing the colours well and the lone tourist compliments your scene giving a dimensional detail thus accentuating the awe of it all.
