Color Theory

By CraigBill    

Hidden gems of the wild southwest, such as slot canyons, are among the most bizarre places to explore. They may not be as expansive as other formations, but can sometimes run miles long. Each one has totally different characteristics. These include earth color and texture, space such as depth and width, and most of all - light reflection. This can vary wildly from time of day to time of year. For this reason, slot canyons are a favorite place of mine to photograph. One reason is that the camera can catch hues and colors that the eye does not easily notice.

Arizona’s Antelope Canyon is a tribal Navajo Park, - not a State or National Park. Created of Navajo Sandstone, these slot canyons are made by thunderstorm flash flood waters cutting into the landscape. In fact, the rushing waters from these storms can start many miles away before they carve through these canyons up to 70 miles per hour. Meanwhile, the sky is totally cloud free and blue above.
