Exif: F Number: 22, Exposure Bias Value: -0.67, ExposureTime: 2/1 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 100, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 50.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 7D

Very interesting shot, Howard. I like it and the colors are amazing. #1532629

Howard Eisenberg June 16, 2013

Thank you Gary. The colors were changing every 5 minutes as the sun moved across the canyon - it was really cool and you end up shooting a lot of photos. #10735352

Excellent capture, compositions, colors, details and shapes, Howard. What a fabulous place for a photographer to hang out. #10736064

Howard Eisenberg June 17, 2013

Indeed Susan, I agree. The slot canyons that are off the beaten path and/or less popular were very good places to hang out. We were lucky to find these - always good to talk with locals. #10736150

Indeed it is a special place. The colors were awesome, we just kept shooting and we (my sons and I) find it really difficult to delete any of the captures we made. #10737599

I only got to Antelope while out there, but heard good things on Canyon X... definitely would love a trip back, 100% for more slots...! This is fantastic, like a tryptich in nature. Congratulations! #10788395

Thank you Chris. There are endless great shots out there as the sun changes.

Sorry to see the vandalism at the National Cathedral this past weekend - what a senseless act. #10788525
