Water can create life.
Water can cause death.
Water is precious.
Water can cool you down.
Water can be fun.
Water can quench a thirst.
But who knew water could create something as beautiful as this, in rock....
This is Antelope Canyon, near Page in Arizona. Located on Navajo land, this is a slot canyon formed mainly by flood water that wears away the soft sandstone and formed a corridor in the rock, that is lit from above by the sun. To give you an idea of scale, the width of the space at ground level is about 8 feet across, at the widest part.
I visited the canyon and simply fell in love with it. So yes, I think a man can love rock.
There is no need for words to help describe these pictures....
One last picture. All visitors to the canyon have to be accompanied by a guide. Out guide was taking a picture of this couple who were in our group, so instead of just standing and waiting, I took a picture of them as well. It is quite dark in the canyon and I had to keep the shutter open for a long exposure to get this next shot, but the woman moved her head too early and the result was a weird picture, as if her head was see-through....
What a fantastic place.
