I was lucky enough to experience two light ray events while in Upper Antelope Canyon that day. The first was a thin pencil-like beam that barely illuminated the small area we were in, and then this one on our way out in this epic cathedral. Our guide threw sand into the air to help pronounce the light, with my shutter capturing this ghost-like pattern rising up through the canyon. It is hard to put into words how amazing this area is, and to be able to capture the light, colour, and texture of these canyons was definitely something I won’t forget.

Great shot! Now all you have to do is make it black and white and sell it for $6m haha. Can't wait till i get to check this place out!

No doubt. Maybe even throw in a moon!

Brilliant shot and maybe better comedy. I've been to antelope twice and couldn't pull it off this well. Nice work.

Thanks Brian! Was definitely lucky to get two beams in one day
