Antelope Canyon Arizona is a must-have to visit if you are traveling on the west of States. All the lands belonging to the canyon belong to a tribe of indigenous Indians Navajo, so it was not included in the official list of US national parks. Antelope Canyon Arizona refers to the slot canyons and was formed due to the ravages of rain water flows and winds on the rocks. Its total length is more than 100 meters, and it consists of two levels: the Upper and the Lower ones. Both parts of the canyon were formed in a natural way, however, to its upper level is a lot easier to get, so many groups of people lead it.
The best time to visit Antelope Canyon Arizona is spring and autumn, to be precise, from March to April and October-November. During these months the sun’s rays penetrate to the bottom of the canyon, wonderfully illuminating it from within. In winter, you won’t be able to enjoy all the magic of this place, and to make high-quality photos, it is necessary to drag the extra coverage. Well, in summer weather is hot: the temperature can rise up to +47 ° C, although the average temperature in August is kept at around +33 ° C. Winters are mild and cold, usually the temperature does not drop below 0 ° C. Very rarely because of the cold masses from Canada a snow may fall, but it melts quickly.
Canyons are long, narrow slit where sunlight hits with difficulty, and therefore a special trick is needed to capture its fancy walls and bends adequately. Firstly, do not forget the tripod; secondly, use the shutter speed (10 seconds minimum). Finally, use the self-timer as possible, so as not to lubricate the amazing beauty of the frame. They say that in the photo Antelope Canyon Arizona looks even more beautiful than in reality. The human eye is not always available to catch all the shades and undertones, which a good camera with an exposure can do.
The best time to take photos of the Upper Antelope Canyon Arizona is the middle of the day when the sun is at its zenith or so, that is, from 11 am to 1 pm. For the lower canyon it is better to take pictures before noon and immediately after it (from 10 to 11 am or from 1 to 2 pm). Upper canyon is deeper and the light penetrates not as good as to the Lower one.
