Where is this canyon?


Hey guys... really random question here. I've seen a couple of photos of this absolutely gorgeous canyon somewhere, but I don't know where it is. The walls look a lot like Antelope Canyon-- smooth and stratified and pink/orange-- but does not look angular like the pics I have seen of Antelope Canyon. It is open, smooth, and hilly. One of the intro pics to mpix.com used to be of this canyon. Could someone tell me where it is? It actually might even be a different part of Antelope Canyon. Anyways, I really want to go photograph it! Thanks!!

Nancy

  I did a Google search of "slot canyons" and came up with this link. Maybe you can tell from some of the photos where the canyon is you're interested in. There were plenty of other sites with info as well.

I'd love to photograph a slot canyon myself but from what I've heard you need guides to Antelope and it can be very crowded and difficult to photograph for that reason. As beautiful as it is it's also overdone. If I ever have the opportunity to photograph a slot canyon I think I'm going to look for one not so popular or at least not so recognizable if there is such a place.

  Thanks, Sharon! I had found a similar website, but I think yours is better.

I know Antelope Canyon is overdone... and everyone and their mother has that photo of the canyon with the light beam coming down into it... but I still want THAT picture! I usually am not usually like that, but I still want it! But I'd rather find this other canyon.

Thanks for the reply, Sharon!

  I know what you mean! In spite of it all I'd like a pic of that shaft of light in Antelope Canyon myself. I've been by Page in a car several times and didn't even know it was there.

  I don't understand what all the hub bub is about. Nancy, why don't you just contact the photographer by clicking on the "contact the photographer" button on the photograph and ask all your questions? Besides, I don't know if that's a canyon or an underground cavern painted with light.

  First of all, there's no hub bub. I didn't create any drama; I was just asking a friendly question. Second of all, I believe you misunderstood me. I said that it looked LIKE Antelope Canyon, but the canyon I am seeking to identify is NOT Antelope Canyon. I already know that the picture to which I linked is of Antelope Canyon, but that's not what I was looking for. And it's indeed Antelope Canyon at sunrise... there are plenty of photos of it around.

If anyone can help, please let me know.. thanks!
