You don't see many light beams in Lower Antelope Canyon, we were pleased to find this small beam on a recent tour. It may be one of the last as well due to tightening restrictions on photo tours (which you can only do with a special permit now), our guide may have gotten into trouble for throwing sand for us on this tour as it is no longer allowed. It is only a matter of time until the photo tours go away in upper as well.

It is rare to find a slot canyon that is virtually un-photographed, and I was lucky enough to find this gem. Very few visit this canyon due to it's remote location that requires an atv or very good sand driving skills. Not to mention the horrible directions online made this a challenging place to find! I was shocked to find a narrow canyon with sinuous curves and some of the best glow I've seen in a slot.

Hard to believe this incredible waterfall is located in Colorado, it could easily be mistaken for being in the pacific northwest. As we sit here in the windy and hot Southwest, the urge to be back in the mountains is strong. Who else has the mountain itch?

Excited to explore a new slot canyon this week near Page, here is a shot from Canyon X last year. If you would like the latest information on the slot canyons near Page send me a message with your email to be added to our secret facebook group. A lot has changed this year like Lower Antelope being closed to photography!

A simple, classic view of Mount Whitney catching the first light of the day. We are down in Phoenix for the week visiting family, then headed to Zion for a private workshop.

Something totally out of the ordinary for me...we have been out photographing dolphins and whales on the Pacific coast this month and having a fantastic time. I have trouble connecting with the ocean, recently I have been approaching it in a more abstract manner and finding some success, paired with black and white I find it to be creatively satisfying. Anyone else enjoy shooting marine life?

For those that really want to geek out on night photography, this is the spreadsheet for you! Aaron Priest has put together this incredible piece of work to help you choose the right shutter speed for absolute sharp stars, find the right ISO for your camera, and to see which cameras perform the best, it's pretty complex and in-depth!
