3 exposure HDR with Canon 5D MK3 inside Upper Antelope Canyon near Page, Arizona. The light beam is made much more visible when the Navajo guide throws sand up into the light path. The guide has to then quickly move out of the way for all the photographers!

Exif: F Number: 11, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/8 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 400, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 26.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 5D Mark III

Thanks Doug ... the place was wall to wall people, but our guide was able to clear an area before another guide threw sand up into the light beam. #11098272

That's pretty cool. I've been at same locale and it's also tough to keep the minute sand particles from getting into your camera. I've seen photos of the dust waterfalls, but not in the light like you have. Lucky you! #11099330
