„Antelope Canyon Slots“

from the gallery of Andre Distel

The Antelope Canyon Slots. The slots are on Navajo land, which makes them accessible only by a guided tour. Those can be arranged in Page, AZ. The Antelope Slots are a short drive outside the city. Your guide will probably get you in a 4WD and drive cross-country through sand and desert terrain until you reach the entrance of the slots.
Taking photos inside is not as easy as it may seem. You have to know your equipment very well. Time is limited within the Canyon (max. 2 hours with the photographic tour) and the dark require long exposures. However, with all the people in there it is not easy to get a perfect shot of the unique formations. You have to know what you are going for, before you enter the slots, since swapping lenses or bodies is impossible due to sand and dust. All photos from the Antelope Slots create a sense of a distant place. Colors and forms are regular but at the same time so random and out of this world. Formed by years of flash floods and of course the light which shines through the Canyon and gives its the most surreal feeling. All Antelope Slot Prints look fantastic on Acryl, Canvas and as Framed Prints.
