-- Artist Notes --
I have never seen patterns of corrosion more expressive than they are in Antelope Canyon especially when the midday sun hits the ancient sandy rock formations transforming them into vibrant yellow, orange, red and purple artistic expressions.
The place is absolutely magical and ethereal and when the sun hits the rocks they really come to life, telling their own unique story right in front of you creating a Flowing effect. Once the sun has gone though, the rocks return to a dull sandy color and formations go into hiding so timing and patience was crucial to capture this shot.
I wanted BIG so I shot this one using a favorite stitching technique of mine that I've developed over the years. This image is made up of about 10 different images captured as a vertical panorama then cropped into a regular size. The benefits of using this technique is that you get to see every fine detail, a greater color gamut and a much wider view of the subject compared with what your average camera can produce. This image has been a favorite for many of my collectors over the years and I have to admit it is one of my all time favs too.
