Brimstone - Craigbill.com - Open Edition

Brimstone is one of the very first images that I created when I first visited Antelope Canyon. I made sure that I went during the time of day that the sun was high over head so that these mystical rays of sun penetrated through the narrow slot canyon.
Blasted naturally out of Navajo sandstone, these slot canyons are made by thunderstorms. It may seem strange that such a dry and beautiful place in the North Arizona desert was created this way. In fact, the rushing flash flood waters from these thunderstorms can start many miles away before they carve through these canyons up to seventy miles per hour. Meanwhile, the sky is totally cloud free and blue above.
