Antelope Canyon and Grand Canyon Photo Safari
Experience the Wonders of the American Southwest
Visit the world-famous slot canyons outside Page, Arizona, and capture the colorful twists and turns of the Navajo sandstone. We plan to visit at least two of the slot canyons during the day, to record images as the sun strikes the colorful canyon walls. Our guide will provide sites and guidance about photographing within the slot canyons. After dark, we plan to return to one of the canyons for photographing both the canyon and the sky, which should be full of stars with no ambient light from nearby towns.
We will also visit Horseshoe Bend, where the Colorado River makes a 180-degree turn. Time permitting, we will visit once early in the day and again for sunset.
After two days with the slot canyons, we will drive to Grand Canyon for three days of sunrises, sunsets and photographing the wonders of this national treasure. Plan on early mornings and late nights as we photograph the colorful canyon walls and skies.
After flying into Phoenix Airport, we will drive about four hours to Page. After checking into the motel, we will begin exploring and photographing. The drive to the Grand Canyon is about four hours. On Friday morning, we will depart the Grand Canyon early enough to return to Phoenix and catch a mid-day flight back to Chicago.
