Recently, I was in Page and decided to venture into Lower Antelope Canyon. I'm planning a trip to some remote slots this spring and figured I'd get some practice. Kind of left with mixed feelings after visiting. Yes, Antelope Canyon is incredible....and yes, it's a zoo. It's impossible to really connect with the place when you're walking through it with 100 other people and have a set quota of time at each spot you stop at. My 1.5 hours in the canyon felt more like 5 minutes. But, there's no doubt it is amazing and I'm glad my fiance and I were able to see it. My guide was telling me stories of how back in the 90s no one really knew about Antelope and people would spend the entire day in the canyon and only see a few others. It's a lot different now obviously. I did learn that slots are a very unique place to shoot. There's something to be said about being in a dark slot canyon and taking a long exposure with the cam...then the viewfinder pops up the image and you see all the rich colors that you can't see with your eye. That's due to a physics concept known as Rayleigh scattering...Floris Van Breugel has great article on that, but it makes slots a lot of fun to shoot and process. The cam sensors pick up so many different colors, from golden oranges and reds to cooler blues and purples. And when you shoot straight up, the natural color transition from cool to warm is perfect. So, I spent a lot of time shooting into the sky. I had to deal with dynamic range for most of the shots I took. This one in particular was 3 different exposures blended together. I liked the really defined twists and curves in this frame. And Happy Thanksgiving guys! Lots to be thankful for. .
From Savanna to Jungle.
Just now back to the internet realm after spending several days secluded from the outside world at @thebisonkabini on the perimeter of Nagarhole National Park a few hours outside of Bangalore, India.
Amidst a shroud of early morning fog and evening mist we traversed the jungle in search of cats. After many false leads and old tracks it wasn’t until literally the final hour that we stumbled upon this male leopard strutting down the road. They call him Torn Ear.
Im here in India because of virtual connection made via Instagram with now real life friend @shaazjung who had invited me here to his lodge @thebisonkabini to experience his own beautiful corner of the world. It’s pretty amazing that from Iceland to India we could relate through a mutual love of wildlife and then finally meet in person today. On the other side of the world... The sliver of India that I’ve been exposed to in both the jungle and culture (and especially the food) has been quite spectacular and I’ll for sure be making multiple return visits. Thanks again @shaazjung! See you soon my friend. 🤙
