UT114 Blue Canyon Walls
Slot canyons are famous with photographers in the Southwest, made popular by the over visited and much hyped Antelope Canyons in Page Arizona.  This particular rarely visited slot canyon required us to ware a dry suit to wade through cold water up to our chest. We also had to do some mild rock climbing, all in search of reflected light on the canyon walls from above. The brighter orange and yellow color result from brighter, more direct sunlight. Vivid blues can result in the darker sections with less reflected light.  The blues result from a much more subtle light, deeper in the canyon with less direct reflected light.
