    From Upper Antelope Canyon, near the entrance to the slot. Had a moment with nobody in the scene so I took advantage.

    Beautiful image, Kyle. It's nice that we as photographers can create mystery where none actually exists.

    Very nice Kyle! I like the shapes of the light in this, and it sure does look like a candle!

    Nice to catch the slot empty like this with the direct light visible behind. Good capture.

    According to the EXIF you shot this the year after I was there when it was still possible to see something like this. Not sure you could really expect something like this anymore.

    I'd agree with that, and therefore not much need to go back...

    Yup - and I have driven past the parking lots for the canyons while on that highway quite a few times over the past few years and one glance at each lot says "run away now". I never lifted my foot off the gas pedal.

    This beautiful image reminded me that there are a few more images there that I need to get but I think the time may have passed by now. I might try in the winter when there are fewer tourists.

    Great capture Kyle!
    Imho the small blown patch on the top is not helping, i would be tempted to fix that...

    AWESOME shot Kyle!!! I love Antelope Canyon and you did an outstanding job in capturing the gorgeous light that we sometimes get to see.
