Light Pillar, Antelope Canyon, Navajo Reservation, Arizona:<br />
In the morning and evening when the light is usually beautiful, Antelope Canyon is very subdued.  But at noontime the canyon puts on a spectacular light show as the noonday sun creeps down the winding, twisted sandstone revealing shapes and colors which can only be found there.  The “Light Pillar” is the result of a long exposure and my two daughters, Danielle and Kellie, throwing sand into the air to create the effect.

Zion National Park, Utah, Upper Subway Panorama–1: If you’re going to hike 9 miles through icy water, over cliffs and up steep mountains with a heavy backpack laden with camera equipment, it better be worth the effort. To make sure this hike met that criterion, my uncle Brent and I remained behind the rest of our party to wait for just the right light in the Upper Subway. This image is actually a composite of two photographs stitched together to create one.
