Antelope Canyon #5 is for phydeaux (Eric). I apologize if my description on my first post led you astray.The flashlight was used to enter and navigate through the very darkest part of this Slot Canyon. In this image you are looking up into a 30foot vent. As you can tell, the light falls of very rapidly as it travels down the vent to the canyon floor.To old photographers, like myself, this proves the Inverse Square Law of lighting. Interest has waned, in this series, so I may post one last image before I shut the Antelope Canyon series down for good.

Amazing shot.. Each one of these images is just breathtaking.. I am sorry people are losing interest.. It would be impossible for me not to want to see beauty like this.. I beleive all the earth is sacred, but there are special places, and special people, with the talent and drive to share, what we cannot see for ourselves..

Perfectly shaped abstract sculpture in stone. You've captured it well.

Heh. A post dedicated to myself. I'm touched. ;) I have to say, it's been a long time since I thought about the inverse square law. Excellent representation of the law, though. Keep them coming as long as you want, I'm not losing interest one bit.

I don't know that waning is the appropriate term. I have been speechless throughout this series. Sometimes words are not adequate and one must just stand in awe. I imagine that there are few words spoken in this place. I am curious though are these images from the upper or lower Canyon. If the lower I hope you had help with your camera equipment going down the ladders. I urge you to complete the series.

Capturing for infinity that which only lasts for a short time.

The shapes and lighting in this one are amazing Bob. Mother Nature can do what none of us is capable of......I do look at these images in complete amazement. I put myself there and can only image the beauty that beholds the naked eye. Thank you for taking the time to post this series with all the interesting facts. You are a true photographer who brings us in pictures what cannot be said in words. Thank you :))

If I ever get the opportunity to photograph scenes of this nature I will refer to your series as a measure of my success. I believe I have a hard act to follow. Itís been a tremendous series of photos. I have thoroughly enjoyed viewing this series of natureís abstract art and your ability to portray it so effectively.

I hold it true that thoughts are things; They're endowed with bodies, breath and wings: And that we send them forth to fill the world with good results, or ill. That which we call our secret thought speeds forth to earth's remotest spot, leaving it's blessings or it's woes like tracks behind it as it goes. We build our future, thought by thought for good or for ill, yet know it not. Yet so the universe was wrought . Thought is another name for fate. Choose then thy destiny and wait, for Love brings Love and Hate brings Hate. - Henry Van Dyke.

G'day Robert,
It's two years since you uploaded this series and I'm glad you posted as many of them as you did so us late comers can take advantage. :) These images are absolutely fantastic, everything about them is superior, including your choice of frames, so good I didn't even notice there WERE frames until reading someone else's comment about them. lol. It's these kind of images that inspire me to aim higher in my own photography, to take the time, make the effort, be particular. Your are unquestionably *Fine Art*.
Magnificent work.
