This is a view of Gulf City's residential area, looking north to the city of San Fernando in the morning. This photo was taken on a tower crane in the Gulf City Mall extension under construction.

When you see this what comes to mind?
The Trinity, Antelope Canyon, Arizona

This was my second visit to Antelope Canyon. During my first visit, I was unfortunate enough to show up (without doing any research) just to find out that the beams of light only appear during certain times of the year (Summer Months).

For some reason on this occasion I found myself alone with these 3 beams of light. My American Indian guide helped me by taking a large group of tourist through the canyon and making it dusty. This dust particles are essential for making the sun beams visible. While I photographed the canyon, she kept anyone from wandering into my shot. I positioned my camera so I can see all three beams distinctly. On my subsequent visits it was almost impossible to get a shot like that due to the crowds.

The exposure was pretty simple because the canyon was evenly lit. I did not make any attempt to bring out the details in the over exposed area and let them burn out (mostly because my eyes had adjusted to the dark and the details in the bright area was lost even to my eyes).

The biggest challenge in processing a photo like this is to ensure that reds in the canyon don't get over exposed. I had to do some minor contrast correction and adjust the highlights.
