Our next stop after the Grand Canyon on our long scenic detour back to Colorado was in Page, Arizona, where we spent a day hiking a slot canyon similar to the famous Antelope Canyon but without the crowds. See LOTS more photos below!
Despite my aversion to the clichéd photos which slots canyons generate in abundance, I must say that photography in slots like this is SO much fun!!! Hiking through there is just as fun, never knowing what’s around the next bend.
The unusual forms and ever-changing bounce light coloring make for a photographer’s playground for sure. I generally prefer slot photos with people in them, which gives the canyons scale and highlights their mind bending reality. Claudia was kind enough to oblige for some modeling! But of course I couldn’t resist honing in on some of the more abstract shots as well.
