Shots from Beautiful, Banded Slot Canyons

My Modern Met’s Alice Yoo writes:
Photographer Christopher Eaton has taken some beautiful and otherworldly shots of the most-visited and most-photographed slot canyons in the American Southwest, Antelope Canyon. Located near Page, Arizona, these deep and narrow canyons were carved over millions of years by the wear of water rushing through the rock, often by flash floods.

“Though these slot canyons are carved into many different geological layers of sandstone and limestone, it is the Navajo Sandstone, formed from the petrified sand dunes of a large Jurassic desert similar to the Sahara Desert of today, that often become the richest canvas for the flash floods to carve their masterpieces through,” says Eaton. “These canyons become otherworldly sculptures of stone that slowly evolve over time.”

    Spiritual. It makes me want to plan to go there. The only thing is- I’d want to see it without any other people around to break the spell.
