A tripod and long exposure are required to capture the Slot Canyon's near Page, Arizona, at their best. This shot is from the Lower Antelope Canyon, referred to by the Navajo People as "Hasdestwazi", which means Spiral Rock Arches. It is hard to beieve that these rocks are carved and sculpted by flood water. This is a stunning place and a highlight on my round the world trip.

f22 at 30 seconds, Circular Polariser
