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.

Havasu Falls Panorama, Havasupai, Arizona:
What could easily be a scene from some tropical, exotic location is actually an image of the Havasupai Falls in the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Calcium carbonate (lime) gives the water its blue-green cast and causes the travertine formations to build up. Only a month later, a flood roared through the falls, broke off the travertine veil and radically changed the appearance of the falls. This image is actually a composite of four photographs stitched together to create one.
