This canyon is an old favorite, and this composition was one of the first I made when exploring this canyon a few years ago. It stood out to me then as it does today. I love the S-curve of the canyon, its sinuous walls swirling overhead enveloping the space in an ethereal atmosphere. A refreshingly brisk breeze flows through the canyon, creating an all-immersive feeling of being in another world, like you’ve entered a secret chasm taking you within the earth itself. The large format black and white film captures the tones and details of this scene dramatically, and I couldn’t be happier to be able to share this place with you once again.
