Upper Antelope Canyon, near Page, Arizona, is renowned not only for its twisting, colorful sandstone walls, but also its light beams. The light beams happen only at certain times of the year, and only at certain times of the day, but those who witness them see a light show that rivals the best laser light show anywhere. The beams dance and glow.
Lower Antelope Canyon, very close to Upper Antelope receives far fewer visitors and, for whatever reason, is far lessor known. Even though they are within a stone’s throw of each other, literally, Lower Antelope remains in the shadows.
Yet, Lower Antelope Canyon has a secret that few know about. It, too, has a light beam, and this light beam shines directly through a “window” in the canyon’s walls, providing an even more amazing effect. This particular photograph is my absolute favorite of all of my ones from these canyons, and it is easy to see why. Amazingly, I have seen people walk right by this phenomenon without ever turning around to see it. Beauty is everywhere around us, and nature’s light shows unparalleled, but you have you have to where, and when, to look.
