Antelope Canyon: Beam #1  

Antelope Canyon Beam #1
A beam of sunlight briefly illuminates a tumbleweed at the bottom of Antelope Canyon near Page, Arizona. The canyon, called a slot canyon, is very narrow, giving sunlight little chance to reach the bottom. As a result, the beams last for mere minutes.

     
Antelope Canyon: Beam #2  

Antelope Canyon Beam #2
A beam of sunlight briefly illuminates the floor of Antelope Canyon, a slot canyon near Page, Arizona. The canyon, which is carved by flash floods, is very narrow, so sunlight gets little chance to reach the bottom. As a result, the beams last for mere minutes.
