Canyon Solitude

Uploaded: January 03, 2005


f/22, 15 sec, 17-40mm Canon L. Taken in Lower Antelope Canyon, Navajo Nation Territory, Page Arizona at 12:56 p.m. on August 31, 2004. Lighting is dim inside the canyon so long exposures are very practical with small aperatures for good depth of field. The only post processing was to increase color saturation by 25 points in PhotoshopCS with some slight dodging of the tumbleweed and ceiling stone. - AIV
