Windy Lady

Windy Lady

Last year I visited Antelope Canyon twice and was blown away both times. When we had a half day to kill on our 2012 trip Willie, Yan, and I immediately knew wed spend it at Lower Antelope Canyon. We arrived slightly before they opened and were the first people down into the canyon. Because we asked for the photography pass we were given 2 hours in the canyon, by ourselves, without a guide. We didnt see another person in the canyon for at least an hour

Willie and I both bolted for the Lady in the Wind. Although we have photos we both liked we wanted a different take or two on her. I based my photo on Skyflakes (Phill Monson) black and white image from here. I think I practically bullied my way into position, forcing Willie to back up and take a different shot. Just kidding I was a nice photographer and let him take his shot and then he kindly let me take mine. Turns out he didnt quite get what he wanted but he ended up with a shot he forgot he wanted. I got the shot we wanted but forgot to get the other shot. Doh Guess Ill have to go back another time

We were treated this morning to beautiful pink, purples, oranges, and yellows during our 2 hour stint here. So beautiful
