The Magic Hour

Here is a shot from Upper Antelope Canyon, Arizona. This place is amazing. The light play in the canyon is constantly changing and there is so much to be explored. I look at this image and see the sun setting behind a sandstone monument with the sky lighting up, hence the title.

On another note, I happen to be in Florida at the moment and during the week was lucky enough to make it to Photoshop World, which was held in Orlando. It was a buzz to see some of the PhotoshopTV lads around and get aย sneakย peek at some of the latest programs available. I was a little geeked out by the end of the day though.

  19. I was fortunate enough to spend a few days here one month ago, such a magical otherworldly place. Great capture here, it is harder than people think to find really good compositions.
