ANECDOTE

“For many years, I'd heard about this unique location. Discovered in 1900 by a young Navajo girl, Upper Antelope Canyon is by far one of the most spectacular slot canyons to be found in the American southwest, and indeed the world. Before my departure from Sedona, my research had allowed me to scope out any potential pitfalls that would be waiting for me in my quest to capture my photographic images. The following points had to be taken seriously into consideration: the best time of year for taking pictures is May; the ideal time to take pictures is between 11am and 1pm; it is necessary to be accompanied by a Navajo guide; sand-storms are a distinct possibility; and finally, the tourist traffic is enormous. 

I made contact with a young Navajo; she set me up with two men from the area who agreed to accompany me. These two guides allowed me to take lots of pictures away from the hordes of tourists. I was so thrilled and nervous I was anxious I wouldn't use my equipment properly. Adrenaline can really push you to your limit! Happily, the beautiful images I captured were extremely satisfying. My photos of the Upper Antelope Canyon are unique and my pains were largely rewarded.

I have a particularly profound memory from this expedition, captured in the photograph Moment de grâce: like a golden pistil, a shaft of light penetrated right into the heart of this haunting rock-flower's steep crevice... one hundred and thirty feet deep. A moment of pure beauty!
