Lower Antelope Canyon is found on the Navajo Indian Reservation near the town of Page. The erosive power of water on sandstone is highly evident here as flash floods through this slot canyon have resulted in carving amazing shapes and textures. Gathering enough light for slow speed transparency film here is a real challenge with exposure times ranging from 15 seconds to 2 minutes at apertures between f/32 & f/45. Sand blowing down from the surface above presents a hazard to film and camera. The graphic quality of this canyon offers endless photographic compositions and I managed to expose 15 sheets of film in about 2 1/2 hours.
